Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente excited at potential Paul Pogba reunion
4th November 2016
Fernando Llorente believes football's most expensive player Paul Pogba could become the world's best player - but hopes his former team-mate doesn't get the chance to shine this Sunday.
World Cup winner Llorente won Serie A titles and Coppa Italia trophies alongside Pogba during their time at Juventus.
Now the Swans striker could go up against his friend and former team-mate when Manchester United visit the Liberty on Sunday (3pm).
Pogba, who has scored three goals in 14 appearances for Jose Mourinho's side, is an injury doubt for this weekend's clash in SA1 after sustaining a thigh injury in the Europa League defeat at Fenerbahce on Thursday night.
But Llorente insists the Frenchman has the ability to become the star player on the world stage.
"I think Pogba above all is a great person - he's a good friend and I experienced great times with him at Juventus," said Llorente.
"I feel very honored to have shared a changing room with a player like him.
"He doesn't have limits. He can achieve anything he wants to.
"He has the ability to be the best player in the world if he wants."
