Rami admits the Manchester United midfielder surprised him during the World Cup.
"I can tell you that Paul Pogba, I don't know how and I don't know from where, has become a leader. He proved it to us, he showed it," Rami said.
"He's a technical player, he has a lot of talent. He was able to battle defensively.
"Everyone loves players who do tricks, nutmegs, flicks. I can tell you that Paul, today, became a leader. He's the one that showed the way."
