Paul Pogba named European 'Golden Boy'

Sports journalists across Europe vote Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba as the best young player on the continent.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been voted as the best young player in Europe by sports journalists across the continent.

The 20-year-old midfielder beat competition from Romelu Lukaku, Julian Draxler and Raphael Varane to win the 'Golden Boy' award - an accolade organised by Italian newspaper Tuttosport.

Pogba joined the Bianconeri from Manchester United last year and shone in his first season in Serie A, ending it with five goals in 18 starts and a league winners' medal.

He joins a selection of past winners, which includes Wayne Rooney (2004), Lionel Messi (2005), Cesc Fabregas (2006), Sergio Aguero (2007), Mario Balotelli (2010), Mario Gotze (2011) and Isco (2012).
