Don’t compare players to Messi & Ronaldo – Paul Pogba
The duo are seen as the best players of the modern era and have each set extraordinary standards in front of goal.
While speaking to Icon, Pogba said Messi and Ronaldo have hit heights that make some players considered to be legends of the game look average
“Messi & Ronaldo have shown in recent years: doing what they did, maintaining those stats – that is the exception, not the norm.
“If an attacker today scores 10 or 15 goals, he is likely to be told that it is not enough. But the player’s work must be judged with perspective.
“You have to remember that someone like Pavel Nedved won the Ballon d’Or without his team winning the Champions League or without having scored much himself. He was simply the best in his role and was rewarded for what he was capable of doing on the field,he said.
