Paul Pogba’s agent slammed Antonio Conte and Juventus for dropping him due to disciplinary measures, but the player sent a very different message.
The midfielder was left out of the squad travelling to Pescara this evening after he turned up late to two training sessions.
“My teammates will do well! Forza Juventus!” he wrote on his Facebook page.
It is a very different approach to the one taken by agent Mino Raiola, who blasted Conte for making the reason for his absence clear in a statement.
“I hope it wasn’t Conte’s own decision, otherwise it means he is unable to deal with situations at this level.”
Juventus take on Pescara at the Stadio Adriatico this evening, kick-off at 19.45 GMT.
