The journalist Romain Bonte, for FranceTvSport.fr, spoke of Paul Pogba. After last friendly against Spain, the praise for Juventus midfielder were spread, so much so that the twenty-one at home is becoming more and more a symbol of transalpine national team.
“Within a few years will be among the top three in the world.” This statement is of a certain Zinedine Zidane on Paul Pogba. “He is still young and has to work hard, but he has what it takes to be a future Ballon d’Or,” said the winner of the Ballon d’Or in 1998. The boy from Lagny-sur-Marne from the beginning has quickly created the interest of the biggest clubs in Europe, and not for nothing was Manchester United to transfer him at age 16, after a long story with the club of origin of Pogba, or Le Havre.
Defined from the very beginning as the new Patrick Vieira for his ability to project forward easily, he left in 2012 to Manchester United for Juventus at just 19 years old. Since then, fans of the Old Lady have been won over by this explosive mixture. A player with the physicality of Vieira and the technical skill of Zidane: all this makes a complete midfielder of Paul Pogba. And watching him on the field, you can just say he’s a perfect mix between the two former players of France and Juventus.
In front of Spain yesterday evening, the twenty year old has once again thrilled the audience in Saint Deniswith his arabesques that completely resemble those used by Zizou . Hooks, veronica, millimeter passes and prodigious recoveries: impressive technical fluency. Nevertheless, Didier Deschamps continues to recall during the matches of the Blues.
The former midfielder and captain of France has realized that Pogba is a nugget of gold, a diamond to polish little at a time. He also knows that his desire and his youth lead him sometimes to commit some mistakes that can quickly lead to serious problems for the defense, when it exceeds in handling the ball. But his great qualities and ability to remedy they quickly forget his few mistakes.
In many believe to this day Paul Pogba as one of the potential candidates to win the Ballon d’Or in the future. Pavel Nedved, who was crowned in 2003, agrees with Zidane: “He can win the Ballon d’Or, I have no doubt. Has plenty of time to improve a lot.” When he was still at the helm of Juventus, Antonio Conte had perceived that Paul had “all the qualities to become the best midfielder in the world”, a view supported by all those who knew the player. With a quality above all: Pogba has the head and mentality of the champion.
From Deschamps has learned from the cult of success, which is essential for a young man so determined. This does not prevent him from maintaining a perfect mood that is reflected in his many statements. Aware of the fact that he still has plenty of time to improve, which leads him also to do not hesitate to ask for some advice from his teammates, Pogba has the ultimate goal of becoming the best player in the world.
“Pogba one day the world will be yours” was one of the titles in the month of August 2013, of the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“The goal of my career is to become the best player in the world,” he said on RMC.
However, he has a few years ahead of him before doing so, the potential is there and everything. And like frequently reminds Deschamps is better “does not ignite.”
