Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher believes Pogba needs to learn how to influence games from any area in the pitch like Gerrard.
“At Liverpool, Rafa Benitez felt he had a dilemma with Steven Gerrard,” Carragher told The Telegraph.
“He saw the dynamism he could offer from central midfield, but was worried about the spaces his forward bursts left in front of the defence.
“Gerrard’s heroic Istanbul performance was not as a central midfielder, but as a No 10. In 2006 he was named PFA Player of the Year, having spent most of the season at right midfield.
“In 2009 he was the FWA Player of the Year, having spent the season as a No 10 behind Fernando Torres.
“The difference was Gerrard was world class and there were options available to Benitez. He was so influential with goals and assists it justified tweaking the system to get the most from the captain. You can build teams around players like Gerrard.
“Pogba is nowhere near that level yet. He has great ability. It is yet to make him a great player.”
Pogba won the Europa League and the League Cup in his first season back at Old Trafford.
