In spite of the heavy criticism that tends to come his way, one cannot deny the fact that Paul Pogba has enjoyed a glittering career so far.
Having graduated from Manchester United‘s youth academy, the star midfielder secured a sensational transfer to Juventus, where he enjoyed tremendous domestic glory.
The Frenchman then made a record-breaking return to Old Trafford, where he has enjoyed both ups and downs since his comeback. In the season to come, he is now expected to be at the centre of a new-look team assembled by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Even on the international level, the 26-year-old has won the ultimate prize, as he helped the French national team win the 2018 World Cup.
Having played for a variety of brilliant teams so far, Pogba has undoubtedly shared the dressing room with some world-class footballers at club- as well as country-level.
In fact, during a recent interview for The Times’ new LifeTimes podcast series, he was asked about the best teammate he has ever had, and his answer did not disappoint.
After deep consideration, the Manchester United superstar replied: “That’s a hard question. I’ll give you two. Because I’ve done two clubs, so I’ll give you two. [Andrea] Pirlo and Paul Scholes – so two midfielders.”
Two deep-lying playmakers with a fantastic passing range – not a surprising answer by any means, considering Pogba’s own playing style.
