The 25-year-old has had his fair share of criticism for his performances, but also for the lifestyle he leads off the field, which many do not agree with.

However, his good friend Doucoure has now said that Pogba has always played and behaved in a certain way, which has allowed him to reach the heights has.

"Since U16, I played with him," the Hornets star said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"And he was, physically, the same today. He was in advance of everyone. He had his technique.

"He was the same. He likes to show off a little bit, but he's a very nice guy, very natural. Today there's a different dimension because he is a superstar, but he was always the same.

"He has this person because he is good on the pitch. Benjamin Mendy as well brings a lot of personalities, shows off sometimes. It's good in football."
