Pogba: 'Juve ready for Bayern'

Juventus pushed past Pescara, so Paul Pogba assured fans “we will be ready against Bayern and certainly believe we can turn this around.”

The Bianconeri needed a late Mirko Vucinic brace to get the better of 10-man Pescara on Saturday, temporarily extending their lead at the top of the Serie A table to 12 points.

“We just wanted the win and we achieved it. This was certainly an important result for our journey in Serie A,” said the French midfielder.

Now attention turns to the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday, when Juve try to fight back from a 2-0 first leg defeat to Bayern Munich.

“We have got to think positive. We will be ready against Bayern and certainly believe we can turn this around.”

Arturo Vidal and Stephan Lichtsteiner are suspended for that match, but Pogba showed a new side to his game against Pescara when replacing Andrea Pirlo.

“I got on well in his role. Pirlo is a fantastic player and I have admired him since I was a child. Even today that we are teammates, I still watch him very carefully when he plays. I’d love to have a career like his.”
