Euro 2016: Arsene Wenger backs Pogba to rediscover form



As the tournament goes on this summer, the Juventus star will be hoping to improve at Euro 2016, as he has recently struggled to make an impact for France.

France midfielder Paul Pogba has failed to meet expectations at Euro 2016 so far, but Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger believes that the best is yet to come from the player.

The 23-year-old was even dropped by Didier Deschamps for their second group game against Albania, but having shown glimpses of his undeniable talent, Pogba will hope to be more consistent in the knockout stage of the tournament.

Wenger understands that it’s difficult for the young midfielder to deal with the expectations, pressure and adversity that he is currently facing, but has backed him to come out stronger and continue to improve.

“When he turns 26, he’ll be the player that we all expect him to be,” he told reporters. “The fact that he’s not doing well now compared to what we expect from him is normal, he’s 23-years-old.

“I don’t know any player who has been a symbol of France at the age of 23. Nobody. He’s going through a phase of maturation, and this is important for him mentally. He can prove to be the player that we expect and can develop his game further.

“He’s on the right track to become an extraordinary player.”

While the future is seemingly bright for Pogba, he’ll hope to make a bigger impact when France return to action in Lyon on Sunday afternoon.
