thumbnail Hello,

The midfielder is clear about his ambition of becoming the world's best, but insists he will be keeping his feet firmly on the ground

Juventus starlet Paul Pogba has claimed he will not be satisfied until he wins the Ballon d'Or.

The 20-year-old has been a standout performer for his club since moving to Turin on a free transfer after leaving Manchester United last summer and was rewarded with his first France call-up in March.

But the midfield prodigy, who was also recognised as the best player at the Under-20 World Cup en route to captaining his side to victory in July, is refusing to rest on his laurels until he is crowned the world's best player.

"I won the World Cup and was named the best player and it was all beautiful," Pogba recalled to L'Equipe. "But I do not feel like king of the world.

"I will not stop there, because I have not yet won the Ballon d'Or."

Suspension means Pogba has been absent from les Bleus' squad for their World Cup 2014 qualifiers with Georgia and Belarus but he is likely to feature when France are in action again in October.
