Wenger tells Man Utd star Pogba: Great players live with criticism

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feels Paul Pogba needs to get used to criticism coming his way.

Wenger feels the Manchester United midfielder must know his form will always be questioned.

“He's a huge talent and because people expect from him to make the difference and sometimes he doesn't look always to have a good harmony with his manager, so people are on one side for and one side against," Wenger said.

“Since I have been in the game the big players have always been criticised. I remember with Glen Hoddle he was a fantastic football player but England he was questioned. I remember Platini was questioned in France, Zidane was questioned in France, Beckham was questioned in England, Scholes was questioned along with Gerrard and Lampard.

“It's the destiny of the great players to be questioned it's that talent to respond and I think he has the mental strength to do it."
