"An all-round player who's already come on no end and can only keep improving." That's Paul Pogba according to Antonio Conte, who's not one for dishing out easy compliments.
But then it's hard to scrimp on the compliments when you're talking about Pogba. Certainly after watching the French starlet produce yet another sterling display and setting up the winner for Tevez at the Marassi tonight.
He showed the technique of a true champion to bring the ball down then kept his cool to slide it across to Tevez. And laying off for a team-mate from a position where most people would have shot instantly is further proof of just what a classy player he is.

"I feel that everyone here has faith in me and that makes me feel very proud. We've made a good start by winning a difficult game with an excellent performance.
"AC Milan lost today? That doesn't affect us. We just have to focus on ourselves and our own games."
