2018 World Cup: Pogba, Kante must bring positive momentum to France – Desailly

Chelsea icon, Marcel Desailly, has urged midfielders, Paul Pogba, and N’Golo Kante to rediscover top form at their respective clubs in a bid to be included in France’s 2018 World Cup squad.

Desailly, a World Cup and European Championship winner with France, said it is important for the duo to bring positive momentum to the team and to be in peak condition in Russia.

“That’s an issue, [that] they couldn’t [produce] a great season for their respective clubs,” Desailly told Omnisport.

“We cannot say that they voluntarily didn’t give their all, thinking of the World Cup.

“Everything will be determined by the way they prepare ahead of the World Cup – physically and mentally, in order to regain momentum.

“They have nothing more to prove as they are both world-class experienced players, but they need to bring a positive momentum to the team.”

Meanwhile, Pogba has continued to lack consistency at Manchester United after returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in August 2016, and has even found himself left out of the starting XI by manager, Jose Mourinho in recent weeks.
