Pogba Future Ballon d'Or Winner?

Juve youngster Paul Pogba has followed in the footsteps of Wayne Rooney, Lionel Messi, Mario Balotelli and Mario Goetze as recent recipients of this year’s Golden Boy award.

The award is voted for by European journalists and the 20-year-old France international won the accolade ahead of players such as Romelu Lukaku and Julian Draxler.

Pogba has captained his country to victory at the Under-20 World Cup and has continued his fine form at Juventus. His club’s general director Giuseppe Marotta believes that Pogba has the potential to win the Ballon d’Or one day.

"I have no doubt that Pogba has what it takes to win the Ballon d'Or in the future. I hope we will achieve great things together," Marotta told reporters.

"He is no longer a future star, but he is already a great champion. He stands out for his courage, hard work and intelligence on the pitch, despite his young age."

In the short-term Pogba has to help his club to compensate the injuri of their midfield motor Andrea Pirlo.

Pogba joined Juventus from Manchester United in the summer of 2012 and has since made over 50 official appearances for the Serie A champions.
