Juventus’ Pogba enticed to shoot

Paul Pogba has revealed that the atmosphere at the Juventus Stadium urges him to shoot from distance.

The young Frenchman netted with another long-range effort on Sunday when he capped off the 3-0 win over Siena.

“The Coach and my teammates always tell me to have a go,” the midfielder noted. “And sometimes I feel that the stadium is encouraging me to shoot as well.

“I had the chance to against Siena and it came off – even though the most important thing is that the team won.”

Pogba has already scored five League goals this term and the teenager is dreaming of many more strikes in the Old Lady’s stripes.

“The attention from other clubs doesn’t interest me,” the summer signing from Manchester United continued.

“I really like it here and I want to play in this shirt for a long time. I’m happy because I’ve already scored five goals in my first year at Juventus.

“I have a great will to learn and I like listening to others. That’s how I’m learning the language, also thanks to my teammates, especially Simone Pepe, who is always talking.”

With the Siena victory now archived, the player is looking forward to Friday’s game against second-placed Napoli.

“We have to go into that one looking to win. We need to play with ruthlessness and concentration, as we did against Siena.”
