Pogba: 'Juve can win Champions League'

Paul Pogba expressed his joy at playing for Juventus and admits they “hope to win this Champions League.”

The Bianconeri pushed past Celtic 5-0 on aggregate and have now won their last five European games without conceding to reach the quarter-finals.

“We played very well and are all very happy with the result, as this was a difficult game for us,” he said of the 2-0 win in Turin.

“The whole team and staff have confidence in me. I am happy, as I came to Juve to play and the Coach has trust in me too.

“I don’t know how far we can go. We hope to win this Champions League, as we must keep going like this, knowing every game is difficult. We are Juve, so we must win.”

Whenever Pogba went into the final third, the crowd as one would shout ‘Tira!’ (Shoot!)

“The fans always urge me to shoot, but I didn’t do it tonight. The most important thing was the victory.”

There were reports that agent Mino Raiola was in negotiations with Juventus yesterday to discuss a contract extension.

“No, there have been no contract talks.”
