Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit has challenged fellow countryman Paul Pogba to get angry at the World Cup this summer when representating France.

Pogba was named as FIFAs Best Young Player of the 2014 World Cup, and Petit has urged the Manchester United man to build on that success to help Les Bleus emerge victorious in Russia.

We all know Pogba has great potential but I want to see the same Pogba I saw against Manchester City when United won 3-2, Petit said.

I want to see that Pogba, with the mindset that he is against the world, when he has no option but to show to the rest of the world that he has the potential to be one of the best in his position.

He thrives on anger sometimes and I want that Pogba. I wish we could have Pogba like this every game.

Every time he is angry, every time he has this anger inside of him and he wants to show people are wrong, I know I want this guy.

Petit was part of the French squad that won the 1998 World Cup on home soil, and he made a total of 63 appearances for the country between 1990 to 2003.

While Pogba hasnt enjoyed any major international success similar to that of Petits, Didier Deschamps side do remain one of the favourites in Russia.
