Paul Pogba names his Ballon d’Or winner

Ballon d’Or winner

Paul Pogba has claimed the winner of the Ballon d’Or should be French.

His side of course won the World Cup, and there were some stand out players.

Pogba thinks that the likes of Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann deserve the biggest personal trophy of them all.

He was gracious when it came to his own performance.

Pogba noted he thought other players did more than him.

Sky Sports report he said: “Whether it’s Grizou (Griezmann), Kylian (Mbappe) or Raph’ (Varane), they deserve it much more than me.

“I can not designate one. But I hope with all my heart that this is one of the three.

“One of the four also because there is NG (Kante). That’s all I hope for anyway, because there are many who deserve it. I do not put myself in.”

United won 3-2 against Newcastle before the international break.

That could well have kept Jose Mourinho in a job.

After the international break, United have tricky fixtures.

They have Chelsea and Man City on the horizon in the league, not to mention Juventus up twice in the Champions League.
