Pirlo in awe of Pogba

number 10

Juventus Number 10 Paul Pogba has been given the grand seal of approval by none other than midfield legend Andrea Pirlo, who says the French international is “the best youngster I’ve ever seen.”

Pirlo, Juve’s former spiritual No10 (he wore 21 whilst at the Bianconeri – as did Zidane) paid homage to his old team-mate, leaving no doubt as to who he feels is the most complete midfield player in the world.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Pirlo said:

I have played with some great young players, but Pogba was the best young player I have ever seen.

We saw from his first training session with Juventus that he was special. There was a disbelief among the senior players that Manchester United had allowed him to leave.

Since then he has grown physically and as a player. For me he is now the most complete central midfield player in the world.

At his age, you can build a team around him for the next years. If he does decide to leave, then I think it will be for a world record

Of course, Juventus will want to keep him but sometimes you can get to a transfer fee that you can rebuild an entire team with and he would get to that fee.
