Giuseppe Marotta: 'Paul Pogba is a future Ballon d'Or winner'

Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta says that Paul Pogba is going to be crowned the best in the world some day by winning the Ballon d'Or.

Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has claimed that the club boast a future recipient of the Ballon d'Or in Paul Pogba.

The France international was awarded Tuttosport's 'Golden Boy' award for the best Under-21 player in Europe recently by virtue of his displays for the Bianconeri throughout the year.

However, Marotta says that it is only a matter of time before the 20-year-old forces his way into the reckoning for more illustrious individual honours.

Speaking to reporters at the presentation, the Italian said: "I am proud that Pogba is part of Juventus. This was a marriage in which we chose each other.

"Now we cannot just say he is a promising star, for he is already an authentic champion. Courage is one of his best characteristics, despite his young age, while I also want to point out his intelligence and hard work.

"In future he will certainly be able to win the Ballon d'Or and I hope we can achieve great things together."

Pogba has struck four times in 14 Serie A appearances for the back-to-back Scudetto winners this season.
