Paul Pogba has named Abou Diaby on a list of midfielders he believes are better than he is.

Pogba has endured a difficult season at Manchester United, but remains one of the most talented players in Europe.

But the 25-year-old believes there are many players of greater quality than he is.

On a list of seven, Pogba named two current Manchester City players and one Diaby, a free agent after being released by Marseille.

Asked by Canal Plus to name midfielders he believes are better than him, Pogba replied: “There is Andres Iniesta, who is having an amazing career.

“Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Yaya Toure even Diaby. Box-to-box, he was exceptional but unfortunately he had a lot of injuries.

“Look at him when he was he was at Arsenal – he was exceptional. People forget about him. In the France team, he was enormous. I’ve got a lot of respect for him. I won’t forget him, I learned a lot from him.”
