Pogba is not a superstar like Messi, Ronaldo - PlatiniThe Juventus midfielder is one of the hottest prospects in European football and he has been linked with a move to Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester City this summer.
However, Platini insists he does not measure up to Ronaldo and Messi, because he does not score a lot of goals.
“Pogba a superstar? No, a superstar in football is someone who scores a lot of goals,” Platini told RTL.
“I don’t know whether Pogba is a player who can achieve the same things as Messi and Ronaldo. They score 50 goals a season.
“It is interesting to note that whenever he loses possession and the team gets into trouble, they all have a go at him.”
Pogba has scored only 10 times this season, while Ronaldo and Messi have racked up 58 and 54 goals respectively.
