Paul Pogba - "I Want To Be Zidane And Ronaldinho Combined"

Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba is looking to be a complete player, that invokes both Messi and Ronaldo.

The Frenchman has been exceptional for Juventus and has become a coveted player, since joining in 2012, winning four league titles in a row.

And after scoring eight goals this season and assisting a further 12, the midfielder is eager to be better.

“I want to become the complete player,” Pogba told ESPN. “I want to do everything: defend, attack, score, give assists, tackle, win back the ball. Be a leader on the field.

“I want to become a new midfielder. From defensive midfielder to attacking midfielder to attacker. I want to take the qualities from everyone.

“Cristiano, Ronaldinho, Messi, everyone. Andres Iniesta. I’m serious. All players rolled into one. I’d like to get to the level where I have everything: Patrick Vieira, Didier Deschamps, Zidane, Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry, Ronaldo. It wouldn’t be bad, that.

“I’ve already scored goals, given decisive passes, won back balls. It’s really just about raising the level.”

Despite racking up a host of honours as Juve have dominated Italian football, a humble Pogba says he is a way off reaching his best.

“I don’t think I am a great; I think I’ve done nothing. I’ve done nothing in soccer,” the 23-year-old added.

“I’ve won leagues, but I haven’t won the Champions League, the World Cup, the Euros. Winning Euro 2016 in France, that wouldn’t be bad.

“I want to work, to be a great, to win everything.”
