Paul Pogba tips France star Kylian Mbappe for big future

Big future

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has tipped France teammate Kylian Mbappe for a big future in football following his World Cup showings.

The forward has been one of the most impressive players in the tournament and could help his side win the World Cup final on Sunday.

While that remains to be seen, his future certainly seems bright and he is being tipped by all corners of football for huge things in the future.

Football fans are not the only ones that can see his quality though, as Paul Pogba has explained that the player sees things that he certainly didn’t at that age.

“He says he wants to win titles. He’s not being pretentious; he wants to do it. He’ll do everything to do it, he has the talent to do it,” he explained, as quoted by the Daily Mirror. 

“He’s going to learn, he’s going to grow, he’s young, he’ll get more experience, he’s already ahead for his age but he’ll keep working, I talk to him, I give him advice, but that’s his talent.

“He’s mature enough, he’s very mature for his age to understand, he understands things I didn’t when I was his age. So it’s only good things for him.”

Pogba himself has also been praised this tournament and many are suggesting that the system Didier Deschamps deploys helps him a lot.

Now, the player has responded to those suggestions by simply stating the two sides have different styles but he will listen to both.

“This is not the same team, this is the French team, the other is Manchester. It’s not the same system, I’m not doing the same thing,” he continued.

“Of course the relationship with Mourinho and Deschamps is not the same, they are two different people.

“I always listen to what they say to me, whether it’s Mourinho or Deschamps. Both help me improve, I’m learning from both coaches.”
