El-Hadji Ba: In action for Le Havre

El-Hadji Ba: In action for Le Havre

Prior to making his debut with Le Havre in February last year, the France U20 international was linked with a move to Tottenham.

The defensive midfielder is now understood to be attracting interest from numerous clubs, and is regarded by some as the best prospect to come out of the Le Havre academy since Paul Pogba.

Pogba, who moved to Juventus from Manchester United and recently received a call up to the France squad, has provided inspiration to Ba as he looks to take his own career to the next level.

"He is definitely the one for me to follow in his footsteps at the moment," Ba said.

"Pogba is doing very well and I am happy for him to be playing for one of the top teams in the world in Juventus.

"I want to improve, and it is very good to hear that clubs have been scouting me.

"I would love to play in England one day. If teams have a good enough offer, then they (Le Havre) will let me go."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
