Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has claimed Paul Pogba is the world’s best midfielder and can win the Ballon D’or.
Following his United’s 3-1 win over Sunderland at Old Trafford on Boxing Day, the Portuguese boss belives Pogba is capable of achieving great laurels in his career.
Mourinho told SFR: If the perception change, Paul can win it [the Ballon d’Or] because Paul is not a goal-scorer, Paul is a midfielder,
‘That will score more and more goals. Because I think he has conditions to score goals. But Paul is a midfield player. In my opinion, the best. The best midfield player in the world.
‘Obviously young. Needs to improve. Wants to improve, which is even better. Has an agent who in my opinion is great for the player because he is not a typical agent who puts the player in the moon. He demands a lot from the player.
‘He wants the player to be better and better all the time. So I think he has everything around him to be a great player.
‘The Premier League is very difficult. You play three or four years in Italy, you arrive in the Premier League and the world is completely different. And he is doing well, he is doing more than well. His evolution is clear. So I can imagine next season for Paul will be top.’
The Frenchman impressed in their against the Black Cats and even provided an assist for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
