France and Manchester United star Paul Pogba admits Juventus is the club where he learned the most in his career. ‘They teach you the football profession.’
Pogba joined Juventus on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012.
He spent four seasons in Turin, winning as many Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia and reaching the Champions League Final in 2015.
When asked where he learned the most during his career, the 28-year-old replied: “At Juventus. I was very young when I went there. It’s all about train, tactics and discipline. Especially discipline,” Pogba said in an interview with L’Equipe.
“You have to be disciplined because tactically, they are very sharp. Everyone really needs to be together,”
“During the video sessions, they tell you: ‘Look, when you make this movement, it shifts here, when you make that call, it creates such a space’. They teach you the football profession.
“I learned defensively but also offensively. At Juve, I arrived as a defensive central midfielder and they made me evolve as a more attacking midfielder.”
The Frenchman returned to Old Trafford from Turin in a €100m deal in 2016, but the Bianconeri fans have been dreaming of his return to the Allianz Stadium since.
Pogba still has a special bond with the Bianconeri and is in contact with many of his former teammates in Turin.
He has recently fuelled speculations about his return to Turin while talking to Claudio Marchisio on Instagram.
When the former Italy international asked him to return to Juventus, Pogba replied: “Ok Principino, next destination Turin.”
Pogba’s contract with Manchester United expires in 2022, but his €18m-a-year salary could obstacle a possible return to Juventus.
