Much to everyone’s surprise, he named his fellow compatriot N’Golo Kante, before going on to agree that it is good to have the Chelsea superstar on his international team.

Kante has undoubtedly been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League in recent years, as he was a vital cog in the title-winning units of Leicester City as well as Chelsea.

Still an important player for the Blues, it won’t be long before Kante comes head-to-head with Pogba once again in the upcoming campaign.
