Pogba has left Man United after his contract expired and is expected to return to Serie A giants Juventus.

“He [Declan Rice] understands the game, he has got good pace, he can control the ball, pass it, make good tackles and get forward. He has the stature of Steven Gerrard [Liverpool legend] in midfield,” Sheringham told Lord Ping (via Express).
