Pogba: Diaby was better than me


Manchester United midfielder put the French in before midfielders like Andres Iniesta, Toni Kroos, David Silva and Kevin De Buryne

Manchester Untied Superstar Paul Pogba thinks that if former Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby did not have problems with injuries he would be the best in the world.

“Modric, Kross, Silva, De Bruyne, Toure and even Diaby, who was the best player in the midfield but unfortunately the injury did the problem. Look at those matches, he is extraordinary at Arsenal. People have forgotten! Same in France, he was extraordinary. I have a lot of respect for him. I will not forget I learned a lot from him. ”


Diaby spent nine years at Arsenal, from 2006 to 2015, but had only 180 appearances for Arsenal.

Problems with fitness and injuries cause him to be injured 22 times in the last four seasons.

After leaving England he returned to Marseille, but in France he played only six games in two seasons.
