Pogba: I want to be Pogba, not Vieira
The midfielder says he is ready to make the next step in his career after earning his first international call-up
Paul Pogba is determined to carve out his own reputation and has brushed off comparisons with France legend Patrick Vieira.
Les Bleus are preparing for two important World Cup 2014 qualifiers against Georgia and Spain and sit in second place in Group I, level on points with la Roja.
And after joining up with the national side for the first time at their Clairefontaine base, Pogba outlined his hopes for the future and determination to become his own man.
"Comparisons with Patrick Vieira? Because I have long legs they say I run like him, but Vieira remains Vieira, I want to be Pogba," the 20-year-old told RMC Sport.
"I hope to impose myself on the France team. In any case, I will make every effort to have a great career. I will give everything for it.
"I'm here because the coach believes I’m ready. Besides, I think so. I'm ready to play and show my qualities."
France will play Georgia on March 22 and Spain March 26.
