Once the most expensive player in history, the former AC Milan and Real Madrid star said the pressure is on the Frenchman after his record-breaking transfer to the Red Devils.
Pogba became football’s new glamour boy after the 23-year-old completed his £89 million ($150 million) return to the Premier League giants.
The France international’s move back to Old Trafford saw him leapfrog Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale as the most expensive footballer but the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner Kaka and current Orlando City captain – no stranger to trying to justify hefty price tags having joined Madrid for a record fee of around £59 million ($99 million) in 2009 – has backed United’s decision to invest so heavily in the midfielder.
“It is a lot of pressure for sure, when you have a move like this with a lot of money.” Kaka said.
“The club did this because they understand that he will bring a lot of things. He is a very good player, very young.
“United have a plan for him and he is probably worth it.”
Pogba will miss United’s season opener at Bournemouth on Sunday as he serves a one-game suspension.
The ban carries over from his time in Italy, having picked up a booking as Juventus lost the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final to Inter and was then shown another yellow in the final against AC Milan last season.
