I didn't assume he wasn't gonna be good. I was pissed off to see him leave. But that wasn't a good season for him to start in midfield. The following season, probably. i.e. When the time is right.
Most creative midfielders are not good defensively. Scholes is one of the best creative midfielders that ever existed. Pogba is a very different player: more of an explosive box to box midfielder.
