Ex-Man Utd captain Valencia: Pogba needs love and support

Former Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia won't hear criticism of Paul Pogba.

Now home in Ecuador with LDU Quito, Valencia says Pogba was always destined to be a star.

He told Mundo Deportivo: "Pogba is a star. I've known him since he was 14 years old.

"If I know what he needs? I heard a lot of rumours about (Zinedine) Zidane and Real Madrid, but he never said anything.

"He is reserved and intelligent. If United give him this love, Pogba will shine as before."
