Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba talks about his former club Juventus. According to the 28-year-old from France, he is developing as a professional footballer with Il Bianconeri.
Man United’s academy product left United when he was coached by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2012. Four years at Juventus Pogba developed rapidly, learned a lot about the life of a professional footballer, and won trophies until United bought him back.
That experience is what Pogba sees as having a big role in his development, be it in terms of the game or as a professional footballer. Pogba told how he learned when he defended Juventus.
“At Juventus. I was very young when I went there. It’s all about training, tactics and discipline. Especially discipline,” Pogba said as quoted by Football-Italy.
“You have to be disciplined because tactically, they are very sensitive. Everyone really has to be together.”
“During a video session, they tell you, ‘Look, when you make this move, it shifts here, when you make that call, it creates a space like that’. They teach you the profession of football.”
“I learned defensively but also offensively. At Juve, I arrived as a defensive midfielder and they made me develop as a more attacking midfielder,” he explained.
As a result, Pogba is now one of Europe’s top midfielders to have won the World Cup and Scudetto titles with Juventus, including the Europa League and League Cup titles with Man United.
