Ronaldinho has claimed that Manchester United star Paul Pogba can without a doubt win the Ballon d’Or in the future.
The Frenchman has been widely criticised all season long for inconsistent performances but he’s still put in decent numbers.
Pogba has double the assists he managed to get in the whole of the last campaign and certainly looks more comfortable this time around.
It was clear last season he needed some time to adjust and since he’s done that fans have seen better performances though they aren’t that frequent.
Ronaldinho though believes Paul is talented and can fulfil anything that’s asked of him from his manager despite contrary belief.
According to the Daily Mail, Ronaldinho said to Canal Football Club: “He can win the Ballon d’Or, without a doubt. I see Pogba as a friend, I don’t see myself as his idol.
“He is young, talented and he has the ability to play anywhere, he can play in a free role, defensive, as a runner or attacking. He has the characteristics of a player who can fill any position, he can make history.”
It’s certainly a huge compliment to the former Juventus man and there’s no one who’s truly denying his talent though United fans yearn to see it more frequently.
In the matches against Tottenham and Manchester City he was fantastic and showed just what he’s capable of when things go his way.
However, being the best means proving it consistently as anyone can have one phenomenal season and that’s why Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are head and shoulders above their competitors.
