Pogba: I want to become a legend

Speaking ahead of Friday’s Euro 2016 curtain-raiser against Romania, France midfielder Paul Pogba revealed that he wants to be remembered as one of Football’s greats.

Pogba, who enjoyed an impressive campaign with Juventus, which saw him score eight goals and 13 assists in 35 Serie A appearances to help them clinch a fifth successive Scudetto, feels he has not reached the highest level of his football career just yet.

“I don’t think I am a great. I think I’ve done nothing. I’ve done nothing in soccer,” Pogba told ESPN.

“I’ve won leagues, but I haven’t won the Champions League, the World Cup, the Euros. Winning the Euro in France, that wouldn’t be bad.

“That’s my strength [ambitions]. I want to work, to be a great, to win everything.

“When I say I want to become a legend, some people say it’s pretentious. For me, it’s a challenge. My desire, a dream. I’m not saying I’ll get there, but it’s what I want.”
