The former Sunderland star made the comments ahead of the Premier League game between United and Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
The former Juventus star has been criticised by pundits such as Graeme Souness, as quoted by The Daily Mail, for his performances this season.
Henderson, who joined Liverpool from Sunderland in the summer of 2011 for a transfer fee reported by The Telegraph to be worth £20 million, has spoken highly of Pogba.
“Pogba is another example,” Henderson told The Times. “Because of how good he is and what is expected of him, people expect to see something special every single game.
“Of course, at times, he is human. He is going to make mistakes, he will have poor games, but ultimately he is a world-class player and will respond in the best way.
“He would not have got to where he has with a weak mentality or not caring about things.”
United and Liverpool are two of the biggest clubs in the world, and Saturday afternoon’s match between the two sides promises to be hugely entertaining.
With both the teams aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, the game is going to be very important.
