Paul Pogba likens himself to Yaya Toure

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba likens his playing style to Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed that he 'admires' Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

Pogba, who signed a new long-term deal with Juve last week, has been challenged to become one of the best players in the world by his club manager Massimiliano Allegri.

The Frenchman has admitted that he still has a long way to go, but believes that he is developing into a similar player to Toure.

"I think there are lots of players still better than me, but it's not up to me to worry about this sort of comparison," he told

"I try to do my job and be the best I possibly can. There are lots of midfielders I admire and watching them helps me improve. I could mention, for example, Yaya Toure, who has a similar size and physique to me but more experience.

"We have more or less the same playing style, even if he's a bit more attacking than me."

Pogba joined Juventus on a free transfer from Manchester United two years ago.
