'Ndombele can be Juve's new Pogba'

Olympique Lyonnais boss Bruno Genesio has confessed that he can ‘see’ Tanguy Ndombele becoming Juventus’ ‘new Paul Pogba’.

A Pogba-shaped void remains in the eyes of some Juve fans, while Ndombele has been linked with the Bianconeri in recent months.

“He’s strong physically and, above all, technically,” Genesio told Tuttosport.

“Tanguy, with his first touch, can get past three players and when he starts running, it’s difficult to stop him.

“He’s precise in the steps he takes. He dribbles well and he’s intelligent. I don’t like comparisons, but Ndombele can be a new Pogba.

“Tanguy can play anywhere through the middle. He’s also started scoring goals, but in the future I expect him to improve in that respect.

“He must become a midfielder who scores 8-10 League goals a season. Tanguy will become a midfielder worthy of a top club, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see him at Juventus in the future.

“However, seeing as I’m his coach, I’d like to enjoy him at Lyon for a little longer.”
