Paul Pogba made his senior France debut and publicly thanked Juventus. “I would never have reached this stage without Juventus and am very grateful.”
The midfielder turned 20 last week and played in France’s 3-1 World Cup qualifying victory over Georgia last night.
“I am happy to have my first cap and always try to ensure I am ready, both for France and my club,” said Pogba.
“Obviously, I would never have reached this stage of the national team without Juventus, so I am very grateful to the Bianconeri.”
It was another message to Manchester United, who Pogba left on a free transfer last summer after complaining of being ignored.
