He named four France team-mates he believes are more worthy of the award.
ALthough Pogba made the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or, he believes the prize should go to one of his compatriots.
“Whether it’s Grizou (Griezmann), Kylian (Mbappe) or Raph’ (Varane), they deserve it much more than me.
“I can not designate one. But I hope with all my heart that this is one of the three.
“One of the four also because there is NG (Kante).
“That’s all I hope for anyway, because there are many who deserve it. I do not put myself in,” Pogba said according to Goal.
