Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is proud to have won the 'Golden Boy' award.
The Frenchman admits he initially struggled to settle in Turin last year.
"Football is my life and it is all still like an incredible dream for me. Of course I'd love to win the Ballon d'Or, but there's a long of work to go before I can achieve that objective.
"It wasn't easy when I arrived here, but I have so much still to learn from a champion like Andrea Pirlo. Tactically and technically, I want to follow in his footsteps. Who would I give the Italian Ballon d'Or to? Pirlo, certainly.
"Carlos Tevez is a great guy who really makes me laugh too."
