Paul Pogba names 7 better midfielders than himself. including VERY surprising one
• Manchester United's Paul Pogba reveals midfielders who he considers to be better than himself
• He surprisingly includes his compatriot and former Arsenal half-back Abou Diaby in the list
Asked by the French channel Canal+ who are better midfielders than himself, Manchester United's midfielder Paul Pogba might have named too many, as he said: "[Andres] Iniesta, he's had an exceptional career. [Luka] Modric, [Toni] Kroos, David Silva, [Kevin] De Bruyne, Yaya Toure even Abou Diaby."
While everything is more or less reasonable speaking about the 6 of them, it's quite surprising to see Abou Diaby's name on the list alongside such players, however, Pogba explained his choice: "Box-to-box, he was exceptional but unfortunately he had a lot of injuries. Look at him when he was he was at Arsenal - he was exceptional. People forget about him."

The 25-year-old even went on to reveal that he had a lot of midfield stuff to learn from the former Arsenal player: "In the France team, he was enormous. I've got a lot of respect for him. I won't forget him, I learned a lot from him."
