​Pogba hails Man Utd teammate Lingard as 'big game player'

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has very good things to say about teammate Jesse Lingard.

The two have been close friends ever since they came through the youth setup in the club.

While Lingard has not managed to fulfil his potential, especially in the last two seasons, Pogba thinks his English teammate is the ultimate big game player.

The Frenchman was reminiscing about the team's 2-0 win over Ajax in the 2017 Europa League final, telling the club's official website: "He knows. He knows. He's made for this. He's always banging in goals.

"He's always been banging in goals anyway. It was a very good game for all of us.

"Everyone played well and we had a very strong performance."
