The 21-year-old left Manchester United to join Juventus in search of first-team opportunities in 2012, and he has developed into one of the most exciting talents in the game during his time in Italy. He has won two Serie A titles with Juve, and become a fixture in the France side at international level.
His impressive displays have attracted the attention of a number of Europe’s leading clubs, and Chelsea and Manchester United have both been linked with moves for the talented midfielder.
Despite the interest from England, Pogba is aware that he can still continue to improve, and believes his progress so far has been helped by the quality of players around him.
The influence of Paul Scholes and Andrea Pirlo, at Manchester United and Juventus respectively, was particularly helpful to the France star.
Speaking to L’Equipe, Pogba said: “Nowadays I am asking advice from Andrea Pirlo at Juve.
“At Manchester United, I watched a lot of Paul Scholes, but I was too shy to ask for any advice. I watched him very closely to analyse everything he was doing and tried to copy his qualities.
“What I have noticed with both of them is the quality of their passes and the way to ask for the ball. Also the way they can feel the game. They have the ability to know what will happen ahead of everyone else.”
Pogba has appeared in all four of France’s World Cup games so far, and he is expected to make another start against Germany in the World Cup quarter-final.
Pogba has been successful with 90% of his attempted take-ons at the World Cup so far.
