Paul Pogba is not sure to receive the best of plaudits if the latest comment credited to him is anything to go by. The 23 year old joined Manchester United for a world record fee in the summer, but has failed to consistently churn out performances that merit his huge transfer fee.
Under current Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte and Juventus boss, Max Allegri, Pogba enjoyed the best part of his career, becoming a world class talent as a result of his near impossible feats he exhibited on the pitch of play. Pogba, the 23 year old France international, has labelled his time in Turin as the highlight of his career so far, which is understandable as he developed into one of the world’s best midfielders and won a raft of trophies at the Juventus stadium.
After a promising start, Manchester United have lost their way, and there have been calls for manager, Jose Mourinho to relegate 23 year old Pogba to the bench, as the extra quality to turn draws into wins is not visible at the moment. Speaking on his official Facebook page, the former Manchester United youth star said,
“A few days ago I was asked how I feel about the CITY of Manchester and not about clubs, “One of the reasons why I chose to come to Manchester United is because it’s where I spent my childhood and it feels like going back home. “Juventus is the most important club of my professional career so far. On the other hand, I am wiling to prove more and working for that here.” ‘At the same time, Manchester United is my childhood home and the club always had a special place in my heart. I will do my best to be successful here, make my club and fans proud of me and make my dreams come true.” he added.
Pogba will need to be at his very best in the coming hectic festive period as the games come in thick and fast so as to make his Old Trafford career up and running, after leaving in 2012 as a teenager wanting to prove himself and coming back 4 years later as a king.
