Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba says that he wants to enjoy a similar level of success as teammate Andrea Pirlo.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has said that he would like to emulate the career of Italy international Andrea Pirlo.

The Frenchman was played in Pirlo's favoured position as a deep-lying playmaker in Juve's 2-1 win over Pescara on Saturday, and the former Manchester United youngster wants to enjoy success similar to his teammate.

"I've admired him ever since I was a kid and I still watch him closely when he plays," Pogba told reporters.

"I would like to have a similar career to his. I enjoyed [being played in Pirlo's position]. He's a fantastic player."

Antonio Conte's side currently lead Serie A by 12 points.
