Paul Pogba names Chelsea star as the most beloved player in history of Football

Ahead of the tournament, France are viewed as one of the favourites, especially after their success in the 2018 World Cup.

Les Bleus, though, have bene placed in by far and away the toughest group at the tournament.

Group F will consist of Portugal, Germany, Hungary and obviously, France.

So, if France do make it out of their group, you would probably back them to at least reach the final this summer.

At the tournament, Didier Deschamps will no doubt be calling upon both N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba.

The pair have formed a formidable partnership at the base of France’s midfield over recent years and were of course key to their World Cup triumph in 2018.

Now, Paul Pogba has been discussing Chelsea and France star, N’Golo Kante.

And the Manchester United man was full of praise for his countrymen, labelling him the most beloved player in the history of football.

Pogba, though, did also jokingly accuse Kante of cheating a lot at games:

“He cheats a lot. A lot. At card games, board games. Honestly, I’m telling the truth. He cheats.

“He says he doesn’t cheat, but he does. He uses cunning. He’s a smart kid, N’Golo. But it’s okay. You have to love him.

“He’s the most beloved soccer player in the history of football. You’ve got to love him, you cannot hate him, it is not possible.

“He is humble, kind, professional. He will never complain, he will work.”

And when discussing Kante’s footballing ability, Pogba stated:

“He’s got everything. He’s good technically, with a good passing quality, and he’s everywhere on the pitch.

“I even say he appears out of the ground! You don’t see him, and – poof – he’s out! He gets the ball, he has the finish. He’s everywhere.

“To have a player like that by your side, what more can you ask for?”
