Buffon: 'Pogba will make history'

Gigi Buffon praised 19-year-old teammate Paul Pogba. “He will make history for Juventus and France.”

The midfielder arrived as a free agent last summer when his contract with Manchester United expired and has now been called up for the Under-20 World Cup.

“Pogba has been a real surprise, as when he arrived nobody thought he could be this good,” Buffon told RMC.

“He is an extraordinary player who maintains great humility. I think he will make history for Juventus and France.”

This season Pogba became a key figure, prompting Juventus to change their tactics to accommodate him and earning his first senior cap for France.
