'Pogba in a category of his own'

Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal has praised Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, saying the youngster is ‘in a category of his own’.

Holland play France in an international friendly this evening, with the Bianconeri man expected to start in the middle of the park.

And the Oranje Coach has been full of compliments for the 20-year-old.

“Pogba is in a category of his own,” he told reporters. “Paul’s physically strong, very fast and technically superb.

“I don’t know many players with all these qualities.

“He’s the type of player who could fit in any team in the world.”

Pogba’s name has been doing the rounds in the transfer rumour-mill in recent months, with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United both registering an interest.
