French website Melty.fr, a news portal dedicated to young people, has nominated Paul Pogba in the 'Male Revelation of 2014' category of their Melty Future Awards.
The nomination, assigned to young French men and women who they believe will leave an indelible mark on the year ahead, comes after the 20-year-old’s talents were also hailed by Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport’s Golden Boy award in December 2013.
Juventus fans can vote for Pogba until the Thursday 16 January deadline here. On Twitter, the hashtag will be #MFA.
The basis for his nomination is expressed in an article on the Melty.fr website as follows: “Pogba was one the key players in France’s qualification for the 2014 World Cup via the play-off against Ukraine.
“Some have gone as far as comparing him to Patrick Vieira: the truth is that for strength and personality, control of the ball and immense physical power Pogba is unique, and already has few peers in world football.
“Sooner rather than later, the Under 20 World Cup’s Player of the Tournament award will be a memento next to the FIFA Balon d’Or he is destined to win.”
The awards ceremony will be held in Paris on Thursday 30 January. Good luck, Paul!
