Juventus' duty to help Pogba reach potential, says Conte

The French midfielder is already regarded as one of the best players around in Serie A and the Bianconeri coach is confident he can become even better with the right guidance
Juventus coach Antonio Conte has vowed to do his utmost to ensure Paul Pogba maximises his potential and becomes one of the best midfielders in the world.

The France international, 20, was one of the standout performers in Juve's 1-0 Serie A win over neighbours Torino at the Juventus Stadium on Sunday and is regarded as one of the best young players in the sport.

Pogba has a growing list of suitors following his fine performances this campaign - with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain thought to be interested in his services - and Conte is confident he is destined for greatness.

"Pogba was definitely more solid in midfield, he fought for every inch defensively and I think this was a very important game for him," he told reporters.

"He's got great potential and could be a great player both offensively and defensively for Juventus.

"That is me saying this, remember I used to be charging up and down the field myself in my playing days. Paul can fulfil his potential and become a great champion.

"It's our duty to make him grow in the right way in order to understand the game and adapt to different situations."
