Didier Deschamps has issued a word of warning to Paul Pogba if he is to succeed at this summer’s World Cup.
The Juventus midfielder scored in France’s 4-0 win over Norway on Tuesday night, but came in for criticism for his lackadaisical performance.
And the national team Coach has admitted that the youngster can’t just rely on his athletic and technical ability.
“For him it is all so easy,” the tactician told reporters. “He has incredible athleticism and is amazing in terms of overall quality.
“But that is not enough in this game. Concentration and application should not be underestimated – especially at this level.
“Paul is aware of all of this though.”
