The Swede says the pair get along well, sharing Mino Raiola as their agent.
He told SFR Sport: "My relationship with Pogba is easy. I talk, he listens. Paul is a player with great talent.
"Now we must be realistic, people have put a lot of pressure on Paul. His transfer has still been talked about a lot. I did not know him before and now that I know him personally, I can tell you that this is someone who works tremendously hard.
"He really wants to progress and he has a great attitude. But do not forget he is young. That's all I can say."
