Juventus boss Antonio Conte believes Paul Pogba has the talent to become one of the best midfielders in the world.

The Frenchman was in impressive form in Juve's hard-fought 1-0 win over Sampdoria on Saturday.

The performance prompted Conte to lavish praise upon the youngster, describing him as a player that has all the attributes needed to be a top-level footballer.

"Pogba is a modern player, as he is strong, fast and has stamina," the 44-year-old told reporters after the match.

"He's also humble, so listens to the advice given by me and by his teammates. We started working on him a year ago and his progress has been incredible.

"I saw his interviews in which he said he wanted to become the best in the world. I am happy with that, because in my view he can be the best."

Juventus welcome Lazio for their first home game of the season next weekend.
