Ronaldinho believes that Paul Pogba has the talent to win the Ballon d’Or in the future despite his stuttering start to life at Manchester United.

The French midfielder has come in for plenty of criticism since his return to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer transfer window back in 2016.

Pogba has struggled to produce consistent displays for Jose Mourinho’s men this season, despite showing flashes of brilliance in certain games.

The 25-year-old was the star of the show as he scored two second half goals to fire Manchester United to a 3-2 comeback win over Manchester City in the Premier League earlier this month.

Pogba will be hoping to produce some more consistent displays for Manchester United in the coming weeks and months.

And Brazilian legend Ronaldinho feels that Pogba has all of the ingredients needed to prove himself as one of the best players in the world in the coming seasons.

Ronaldinho is quoted as saying by Goal: “He can win the Ballon d’Or, without a doubt.

“I see Pogba as a friend, I don’t see myself as his idol.

“He is young, talented and he has the ability to play anywhere, he can play in a free role, defensive, as a runner or attacking.

“He has the characteristics of a player who can fill any position, he can make history.”

Pogba will be expecting to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Sunday with a crunch clash against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils booked their place in the FA Cup final on Saturday thanks to a 2-1 win over Tottenham in the semi-finals.
