Paul Pogba pushes 'World-class' Greenwood to go to the highest level

Sun 18 April 2021 | 11:43

Pogba has advised the Reds devils forward to work hard if he wants to become a 'World-class' player.

Mason Greenwood

has exceeded the expectations, as the

Manchester United

's forward has reached his peak for at Old Trafford this season. The 19-year-old has scored three goals and made one assist in his last five outings to help the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in their journey to win the Europa League and a top-three finish in the Premier League.


Paul Pogba

believes the young talent has the potential to become a ‘World-class’ player but he shouldn’t be overwhelmed by the hype he is receiving.

"Mason is a big-talented player that we had from our academy,"

Pogba told

Sky Sports


"He can go to the highest level, world class, it just depends on him.

"He has to work hard, harder than everyone, believe in himself and want it. When you're talented like this, you already have talent, now it's only the work you put in to make you become the world-class player you have to become with this talent.

"It depends on him. I will always be the guy to push him, not praise him too much, but push him to get to the level he should arrive at.

"That's the way I am, I don't like being praised too much because you can get too comfortable and you think you are there when you are not.

"World-class players like Lionel Messi and Ronaldo have been top for years and years. Achieving that for one year is not enough, you want to be world-class for your whole career."
