Juventus coach Antonio Conte was delighted with Paul Pogba's performance in victory over Sampdoria.

Pogba was superb in the 1-0 win.

"We started working on him a year ago and his progress has been incredible. I saw his interviews in which he said he wanted to become the best in the world. I am happy with that, because in my view he can be the best.

"Pogba is eclectic and a modern player, as he is strong, fast and has stamina. He's also humble, so listens to the advice given by me and by his teammates."

It is particularly remarkable considering Juve snapped up Pogba on a free transfer from Manchester United.

"We can't spend €30m for a player, so we try to move early to get either Bosman transfers or low-cost opportunities so we can get in front of the rest."
