Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba is hoping to do better than Maradona and Pele in his career.
The France international has been in fine form for Juventus, winning four Serie A titles and a coppa Italia.
But Pogba has now set his sights even higher, and says he hopes to go down as one of the best players in the history of the sport.
“I want to become a legend, like Pele or Maradona,” he told La Repubblica.
“Or more than them. I’m not trying to say that I’m the strongest, only that I want to be.
“I have a problem: I hate to lose. And I like to be different, I want to do what nobody else has done. I work hard because I aim to become perfect and because it makes me happy when I win.
“I may not be among the most beloved players, but that’s not my target. I’m working to be the best.”
