Louis Saha says Manchester United have just one world-class player

Pogba is the only world-class player at United - Saha

Former Manchester United star Louis Saha has said that the Red Devils have just one world-class player in the form of Paul Pogba in their first-team squad.

Pogba has come under criticism from the fans for his performances over the past 18 months and he did not have the best of games as the Red Devils settled for a 1-1 draw at Southampton over the weekend.

Despite this, Saha believes that Pogba has the potential to be one of the best and the Frenchman is clearly the player with the better pedigree when compared to his fellow United teammates.

"No disrespect to the other players but he could say 'I'm the only one here who could claim to be a world-class player right now'. At the same time, he's always going to be on the spot because he is the only one," he told Astro SuperSport.

Pogba started the season with a couple of assists in the 4-0 thumping of Chelsea at Old Trafford. He has since failed to make a similar impact and was the subject of severe criticism from his own fans following the missed penalty in the 1-1 draw at Wolves earlier this month.
