Football News - Paul Pogba: I don't deserve to win the Ballon d'Or
Paul Pogba has said he does not believe he should win the 2018 Ballon d'Or award despite being announced on the 30-man nominee list on Monday.
The 25-year-old was part of France's World Cup winning team, scoring a goal in the final against Croatia.
Pogba is one of six members of Les Bleus' squad nominated for France Football Magazine's prestigious award - with team-mates Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Raphael Varane, N'Golo Kante and Hugo Lloris joining the midfield star.

However, the Manchester United man believes he should not win the Ballon d'Or ahead of his international team-mates. He told AFP:
"Whether it's Grizou (Griezmann), Kylian (Mbappe) or Raph (Varane), they deserve it much more than me. I can not designate one. But I hope with all my heart that this is one of the three."
"One of the four also because there is NG (Kante). That's all I hope for anyway, because there are many who deserve it. I do not put myself in."
The 2018 Ballon d'Or ceremony takes place in Paris on December 3.
