Juventus star explains reasons for Man Utd exit

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has explained why he decided to quit Manchester United.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was disappointed with the manner of Pogba’s exit this summer.

But the youngster has defended his decision to quit Manchester United for Juventus.

“I don’t know why he said that,” Pogba told L’Equipe. “A 19-year-old player who said no to Ferguson – maybe he took it badly?

“There are things about which we failed to agree.

“I don’t regret anything. I learnt a lot there. But you have to be part of it to understand my decision. It is a feeling I had with the coach.

“The coach trusted me, but he didn’t play me, saying I was too young.

“He said ‘Your time will come’ but it didn’t come.

“Despite his 25-year career, despite the fact he was the boss, my objective was to play. I am impatient.

“Now I want to become a regular starter and become one of the best players in the world.

“To achieve that, there is only hard work – I learnt that alongside the great players at Manchester United.”

He added: “I didn’t go to Juve because I knew I would be part of the starting line-up. I have no guarantee.

“The coach told me there are a lot of matches to play and he wanted a substitute for Pirlo and Vidal. He didn’t tell me you will play X number of matches.

“When I was at Manchester United, I have been told I would play.”
