“I already call him ‘little old man,'” Pogba told  Telefoot . “He’s 19 and he’s already very mature for his age.

“He has great qualities and very big potential. He’s going to bring a lot to the French team and I’m very happy for him.

“Now he’s changed club and he’s going to get to know the Premier League. He’s going to play with some big players and he’ll make a lot of progress.”
