Jones: Pogba 'can do what he wants while he plays like this'

The midfielder's choices away from football are often criticised but his team-mate says he has earned the right to live life how he chooses


Phil Jones says his Manchester United team-mate Paul Pogba can be “as good as he wants to be” and insists he has “earned the right” to express himself

Pogba has often been criticised for how he lives his life off the pitch, whether he gets a new hair cut or posts on social media.

The midfielder won the World Cup with France last summer but endured a difficult start to the domestic season as Jose Mourinho’s time at Old Trafford came to an acrimonious end.

But he has been in scintillating form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the reins, scoring eight goals and providing six assists in his last 13 league games.

And Jones says that while Pogba is making plenty of headlines off the pitch, his current performances on it are silencing any doubters.

“He does the talking on the pitch," Jones told Goal in an exclusive interview.

"Maybe people do that outside of football but don’t really do it on the pitch. He’s earned that right from what he’s done and he can do whatever he wants as long as he performs like he’s doing at the moment.”

Jones played alongside Pogba while the youngster was on the fringes of Sir Alex Ferguson’s first team during the 2011-12 season, and still remembers the midfielder offering a glimpse into the future when he came up against United legends in training.
