Paul Pogba believes Juventus coach Antonio Conte can follow in the footsteps of iconic Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

French midfielder Pogba, 19, worked with Ferguson during his three-year spell at the Premier League giants, before leaving the club for Juve in the off-season.

“Can Conte become a true great like Ferguson? I think so, yes. He is a great trainer and an equally good manager,” Pogba told Tuttosport.

“Conte and the other members of the technical staff keep on telling me that I still have room for improvement, and they are right.

“We talk to each other in Italian. We speak very often.”

Pogba also discussed his chances of becoming a regular starter at Juve, and said he is determined to break into the first team.

“I don’t know whether it will be tough to beat the competition of players such as (Arturo) Vidal and (Claudio) Marchisio for a starting berth,” he said.

“That’s a decision the coach has to make.

“I only know that I will have to be ready whenever the coach needs me. I always want to play, also against Inter.”

Juventus take on second-placed Inter Milan on Saturday as they aim to extend their four-point lead at the top of Serie A.
