The Frenchman's inconsistent performances for the Red Devils in the 2017/18 campaign has seen him come in for a lot of criticism, while there have also been rumours that he and manager Jose Mourinho fell out.

Despite this, Pogba wants to prove himself at the 2018 World Cup, and perhaps even win the Player of the Tournament award.

"I hope now, at the World Cup," he told Canal+ when asked when he thinks he could emerge as a leader for the France national team.

"I'm going to take the reins of the France team, try to be the boss on and off the pitch.

"I hear it (criticism) a lot. I hope to give my answer on the pitch and show everyone. I was the best young player (in 2014).

"I hope I'll be the best player overall at the World Cup. That would be great."

You were not the best in the EPL and the CL. Your team got beaten by all small teams recently promoted to the EPL. The world cup is something else. Lets see if you can outshine Mbape and Nabil.

Only if he is played in his natural position with a free role in midfield just behind the strikers.
