Pogba can be one of the world top three footballers: Morata

Turin, March 24 (IANS) Juventus striker Alvaro Morata believes teammate Paul Pogba can become one of the top three footballers in the world.

The 23-year-old French midfielder is one of the most sought after players and is likely to expect large offer again at the end of this present season.

“He is fantastic person and a good friend of mine,” Morata was quoted as saying by goal.com on Thursday. “He can play wherever he likes. He won’t be short of offers.

“If he wants to stay at Juventus, they will renew him for five more years. And if he wants to join another team, they will give him an incredible contract.

“Everyone knows Pogba as a player, so the only thing I can add is that as a person and as a professional, very few people know this, but he trains twice as hard as the rest. All work bears its fruit and he has in his head to be the best in the world. And I’m sure he will be among the top three.”

Last week in the second leg Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, Morata was substituted around the 72nd minute mark with Juventus leading 2-0. But then Bayern staged a comeback and eventually beat the Italian giants 4-2 after extra time.

“We were winning 2-0 and we ended up losing 2-4,” Morata said.

“It’s very difficult to understand and to digest, but the Champions League and football are like that.”

“(Head coach Massimiliano) Allegri hasn’t spoken to me about the change, but I imagine he wanted to win as well. And I’m sure he decided to take me off in that moment so that we could defend or in order to make a tactical variation.”
