Pogba a huge talent: Carrick

MICHAEL Carrick is convinced Paul Pogba will have a big future at Manchester United.

The 18-year-old is set to make his senior debut in tonight’s Carling Cup tie at Leeds, having made steady progress since his controversial arrival from Le Havre in 2009.

And although Carrick is aware the teenager still has plenty of work in front of him, he feels the signs are encouraging for a top-class career.

“Paul is a huge talent,” said the midfielder. “He has trained with us |a number of times, so we have seen quite a lot of him and he looks very promising.

“If he goes about things in the right way and gets a little bit of luck at the right time, he is going to have a bright future.”
