Deschamps hails Pogba performance
French national team manager claims he monitors the player’s progress.
The 19-year-old forward Paul Pogba made an impressive debut for Juventus this term which led to calls that the striker is ready for the national team and France boss Didier Deschamps says he is aware of the great potential of the youngster.
“Paul will be a phenomenon when he’s been playing at these levels for three or four seasons. However, there is no doubt that he has interesting potential. He has the characteristics and the right head to flourish. You don’t play in so many games for Juventus by chance,“ stated former Juve manager.
The tactician revealed that he spoke to Antonio Conte about the player’s future and expressed his confidence the player will receive his first call-up for the national team in the nearest future
“Paul’s time will come with the national team. His future just depends on him. He’s already on my preliminary list for the games against Georgia and Spain. You’ll have to see if he makes the final squad,” underlined Conte.
