Paul Pogba on his progress, his game and off-the-pitch lifestyle


Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba says the France national team has improved drastically under manager Didier Deschamps.

France will host the 2016 European Championships and the 21-year-old wants the players to be ready for what will be an important event for the country.

"I hope we'll be at our best in two years," Pogba told FIFA's official website.

"Right now, we have a very good dynamic. We're progressing well and we need to continue in this direction.

"We have to always want more. For now, we've managed to earn our place back in the hearts of the French public. Winning back the love that we'd kind of lost will help us a lot in the future."

Asked about his progress since leaving Le Havre for Manchester United, the Frenchman said: "Each change of club has been important: firstly Le Havre, then Manchester United and after that Juventus.

"The fact that I got to discover high-level football and share a dressing room with great players was a turning point. That gave me the desire to be one of the greats.

"I know about my failings. I sometimes take risks that I shouldn't. I also need to be able to manage my game over the full 90 minutes.

"I mustn't play uniquely by instinct. Those are the things I have to pay attention to in my position, because it's in midfield that you control the play, get the most touches on the ball and where you can change the rhythm of a match.

"We're the engine of the team to an extent and we can't afford to fall short.

"The people who know me know I'm someone who likes to laugh, make jokes and get the most out of life.

"We have a great life and a wonderful job. We're able to walk, and eat and drink to our heart's content, which isn't the case for everyone.

"We can't complain. I'm just happy and content with everything that happens to me."
