Paul Pogba has hailed Chelsea star N’Golo Kante and Real Madrid enforcer Casemiro as the ‘toughest’ opponents he’d faced during his career.

Pogba, the Manchester United midfielder, has faced some of the world’s best players during his time at Old Trafford and Juventus – as well as on the international scene with France – but the two central midfielders sprang to mind when asked who was the stiffest opposition.

Kante lines up alongside Pogba on international duty but the pair have faced off many times in the Premier League during his spells at Leicester and Chelsea.

Casemiro and Pogba did battle in the Uefa Super Cup in 2017, after United had won the Europa League and Real Madrid had beaten Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final.

And Pogba was clearly impressed with the Brazilian, rating him as his toughest opponent alongside Kante.

‘My toughest opponent on the pitch? To be honest, it’s tough against N’Golo Kante,’ Pogba said in a Q&A with United Review.

‘Casemiro too… he is a hard one also. I can’t remember all of them; they’re the first ones that come into mind that I had. 

‘Yes, those are the first ones. Maybe there are a few more players but I don’t have the names now.’ 

Pogba was also asked about his greatest performance for Manchester United and he chose the memorable 3-2 Premier League win over Manchester City in the 2017/18 season, where he scored twice.

‘I would say because it’s a memory of the game, the 3-2 versus Manchester City, because I scored two,’ he added.

‘We ended up winning, but if City won the game they were going to be champions against us. We avoided that, so I would say this one.’
