France captain Hugo Lloris believes Manchester United are yet to see the best of world record signing Paul Pogba’s abilities because of the star’s fatigue. 

Pogba was an integral part of the France squad that went all the way to the final of the recent European Championships, where they progressed all the way to the final before succumbing to a heartbreaking loss to Portugal.

Having then completed his record deal to Manchester United, the star enjoyed only the shortest of breaks, a factor Lloris believes is having an impact on the player’s form.

‘There are a lot of players who played in the Euros and experiencing physical difficulties at this moment. Their preparation was not ideal for the new season. Paul is one of them. And he has to take on a record transfer to Manchester United,’ Lloris told ESPN.

‘There are lots of little things that have slowed him. But we all know he has many qualities and talent – that’s why we’re demanding of him. But things will go well for him with work.’

Lloris is confident that in time Pogba will rediscover the best of his ability, while time will also help the star adjust to the weight of expectation he carries.

‘I can understand the high expectations around him,’ Lloris added. ‘There are also [some expectations] from the dressing room and also from the staff and the coach. But France is a team and not only one player. We have to be complementary to get the best performance.

‘Paul has everything to be a great player but we always ask him to back that up. He can show it in a big game on Monday,’ Lloris concluded.

Pogba has made eight appearances for Manchester United this season, scoring once.
