Paul Pogba has insisted his France international colleague Raphael Varane needs little help in acclimatising to life at Manchester United.

Varane joined Manchester United this month from Spanish side Real Madrid and was an unused substitute in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Southampton.

When asked if he has helped Varane bed in at United, Pogba told Manchester United’s official website: “I think he doesn’t need me to settle in.

“He just settles in by himself. He is someone very mature, a very good guy. I think you can see he is very good with everyone already. He is really good in the changing room, which is very important in football.

“He’s a top man, a top player and brings his experience, his quality and his personality, even outside the pitch, to help the team.”
