Pogba is now starring with Juventus, having quit United last summer.
Ferdinand, discussing West Ham United's Ravel Morrison, tweeted:
Adnan & pogba were not as good at youth team level as Ravel but by 18yrs old they had progressed further football wise.
Having all the ability alone is not enough. You need the right attitude & work ethic to go with it.
