French legends: “Paul Pogba is better than Zidane”

Written by Jimmy Rustling

That is the statement of former French defender Marcel Desailly. He claimed that none of the 1998 French gold medalists were better at playing for United.

Desailly played for “Les Bleus” for 11 years from 1993-2004 with a total of 116 appearances. During this time, former Chelsea and Marseille defenders have twice advanced to the 1998 World Cup and EURO 2000, along with excellent midfielders such as Zinedine Zidane, Youri Djorkaeff, Patrick Vieira, Emmanuel Petit. However, he said that Paul Pogba is better than all these people.

Desailly played extremely well during the golden age of France.

Since France has been on the top of the world for 20 years, their new generation has continued to produce talented young players such as Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele and especially Paul Pogba.

Share with the press, Desailly said that Pogba has many factors to become the best player in the world but he is burdened with too much pressure.

Is Desailly a little talkative or is this just a spiritual encouragement?

He has many talents in any of my generation.” The 49-year-old said

“Pogba is under a lot of pressure, so his recent performances are not good, but everyone knows how much he has potential, but maybe we’ve been unlucky enough.”

“He will make a difference in the team, but of course the rest of the players must share responsibility with Paul.”
