Pogba: 'Juve lack something'

Paul Pogba admits Juventus “lack something in the Champions League” after a 1-0 defeat to Olympiacos.

“I think we do lack something in the Champions League, whereas in Serie A we are more relaxed,” the Frenchman told Sport Mediaset.

“In Europe we play against teams who are all very strong and we must take that extra step to go forward.”

Pogba had one of the best scoring opportunities in the second half with a cross-shot that Roberto flapped out from under the bar. Was it an intentional hit?

“It was meant to be a cross. I wanted to hit it hard across, but it went up and the goalkeeper anticipated it. The ball could’ve gone in, the goalkeeper did a great job tonight.”

Juve were caught out on the counter this evening when Andrea Pirlo was dispossessed and Pogba revealed this is a tactical issue.

“Allegri tells me to run off the ball, but the problem is that I should be closer to Andrea, as otherwise I leave him on his own.”
