Paul Pogba has revealed that he watches videos of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in a bid to improve and become a complete midfielder.

The Juventus star has emerged as one of the driving forces in Didier Deschamps’s France side, scoring in a 2-0 win against Nigeria to set up a World Cup quarter-final against Germany.

I love to watch the videos [of the matches] and correct my errors on the pitch. I often watch Andrea Pirlo, Yaya Toure but also Gerrard and Lampard

Pogba, 21, scored seven goals and made seven assists in 36 Serie A appearances last season, prompting interest from Chelsea, Real Madrid and United.

And the France international revealed that he looks to learn from the likes of Gerrard and Lampard, whilst describing Andrea Pirlo and Paul Scholes as his idols.

“At the start I was a forward, then a number 10. I liked the trequartista role, I felt at home there,” Pogba said.

“Then I moved back and it started to be more aggressive technically. That way I had the chance to complete my game. In Italy I have grown further from a tactical point of view.

“I love to watch the videos [of the matches] and correct my errors on the pitch. I often watch Andrea Pirlo, Yaya Toure but also Gerrard and Lampard.

“I also like watching videos of the great former players like Zidane and Ronaldo. I look to take the best aspects of their games and mix them up.

“My role models? Pirlo at Juve and Scholes at Manchester United.”
