Antonio Conte: 'Paul Pogba can be one of the world's best'

Juventus boss Antonio Conte insists that Paul Pogba has all the attributes to go on to become one of the best midfielders in the world.

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.
