Despite enjoying an impressive season with Juventus and being recognised as a key player for his country, Pogba has been told that he must cut out his bad habits when on the pitch.
"Pogba needs to remove certain superfluous aspects of his game," Deschamps told members of the media.
"No-one gains from them – not him or the team. I told him what he did well and what I didn't like.
"He can't take the easy route now, he needs to work hard."
Former Manchester United midfielder Pogba was linked with a move to Chelsea earlier this week.
