|Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed his gratitude for the experienced player’s he has played alongside during his time in Turin.
The 23-year-old joined the Bianconeri in 2012 after failing to break into the Manchester United starting line-up under Sir Alex Ferguson.
“It’s true, I have improved a lot in recent years,” the France international told UEFA.com.
“I think it’s because I’m surrounded by great players who are humble, hard-working and that make you work hard. Players like Gianluigi Buffon and Andrea Pirlo are my role models. I want to achieve their career goals.”
Pogba also recalled his fond memories of representing France at the Under-17 European Championship in 2010.
“It’s a great memory,” he added.
“I played against some of the bigger nations like England and Spain. It was a great experience for a young player. We lost but I learned a lot.
“It helped me to improve. It’s always been a dream for me to wear the shirt and play for my country.”
