When discussing Pogba, Badala revealed that the French midfielder is a devoted fan of Boca Juniors and idolizes Juan Roman Riquelme.

We had a conversation, and I was surprised to learn that he loves speaking Spanish.”
“Pogba mentioned his love for Boca Juniors and frequently talked about his admiration for Riquelme. On one occasion, he even showed me a game on his phone, where he had included me as a player in his team. It was a fascinating experience,” Badala added.
Moving on to his relationship with Alvaro Morata, Badala expressed great admiration for the Spanish forward. According to him, Morata played a significant role in his development as a player.
