The Portuguese has been talking up the France international ahead of his second Premier League debut for Manchester United against Southampton at Old Trafford on Friday.
Exclusives News Gathered That Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes Paul Pogba is the world’s best midfielder, but does not expect the France international to produce fireworks every week.
Pogba, 23, became the most expensive footballer of all time when moving to United from Serie A champions Juventus for£93.8m earlier this month.
All eyes will be on Pogba, who left United to join Juventus in 2012 before returning this summer, when he makes his second Premier League debut for the Red Devils against Southampton on Friday.
However, while big things are expected from Pogba following his world record transfer, Mourinho insists he does not believe a huge amount of goals should be one of them.
Mourinho added:”So, maybe it’s not an impact, maybe just a natural improvement of the team, because he’s a super football player.
“When you speak about the best players in the world, you go immediately to the ones that score a lot of goals.
“You don’t give a golden ball [Ballon d’Or] to a goalkeeper. You gave it to [defender Fabio] Cannavaro once, because in that season he was the captain of Italy, the world champions.
“[Paolo] Maldini never got a gold ball. [Javier] Zanetti never got a gold ball. Top goalkeepers, over history, didn’t get a gold ball. You look immediately to the ones that score a lot of goals.”
