Boghossian impressed by Pogba

Juventus’ Paul Pogba could have an even better career than Patrick Vieira, says Alain Boghossian.

The kid who today celebrates his 20th birthday has been likened to Vieira, but the former Napoli, Parma and Sampdoria midfielder sees greater potential.

“The most common comparison is with Vieira, but I think he can become stronger than Patrick,” Boghossian told TMW.

“Pogba is doing very well and he has had a great impact on the Italian championship.

“He’s a good kid, he works hard and he has won the confidence of his Coach. If he keeps his head right then I’m sure he will become a top player.”

Pogba left Manchester United for Juventus during the summer. He has scored five goals in 20 Serie A games this term.

France boss Didier Deschamps yesterday named him in the full international squad, for the first time, ahead of the games against Georgia and Spain.
