Paul Pogba thanked Juventus for helping to speed up his career. “The Coach has faith in me and I feel at ease.”
He left Manchester United on a free transfer when complaining Sir Alex Ferguson wouldn’t give him enough playing time, but has quickly become a Bianconeri mainstay.
“Have Juventus helped me save time in my career? I’d say so, as I am 20 years old and have already played in the Champions League, which isn’t to be sniffed at,” he told L’Equipe.
“The Coach has faith in me and I feel at ease on the pitch.”
Pogba is also called up for France’s World Cup play-off against Ukraine.
“Now we prepare for the next game and hope to achieve qualification for the World Cup. I will try to do my best and believe the Coach called me so that I can give a more attacking contribution to the team.
“With Juventus I play in a more forward role compared to the Bleus, but it is not a problem for me to play in a deeper position. I can do both roles.”
