Manchester City and Chelsea target Paul Pogba is not a star player - Michel Platini

Last updated : 19 May 2015 By DSG

In a surprisingly scathing attack on a fellow countryman; Michel Platini has challenged the quality of Paul Pogba

He may not score often enough or keep the ball as well as Iniesta but the French starletÂ’s performances especially in the past two seasons have triggered interest from virtually all of European footballÂ’s biggest teams.

It then comes as a surprise that Platini, a self proclaimed lover of emerging talent could be quoted as saying, “Pogba isn't a superstar

I don't know if he is someone who can be on the same level as Messi or Ronaldo

It’s interesting to notice that when he loses the ball and his teammates suffer, they yell at him straight away.” Of course he is probably not destined to be at the level of Messi and Ronaldo as very few people if any are in that position anyway

When such a young player loses the ball in a Juventus team filled with veterans he will probably be told off for it not because of lack of quality or stature but rather that he is more like a junior player.

Even if the UEFA President is convinced Pogba is no good, he certainly should not say it to the media for the playerÂ’s sake and more importantly for his future especially considering the possibility of an imminent big-time move from the Serie A.
