“Pogba? Better at basketball than at football”

Five years after his departure, Paul Pogba is back home. The French world champion was presented this week by Juventus, where he will try to revive his career with a view to the World Cup in Qatar next winter. For his coach Massimiliano Allegri, the midfielder arrived in an ideal state of mind.

‘Pogba comes home’

Paul (Pogba) arrived with the right attitude, with the will and the determination to come back and play at the level, which he was not able to do in his last season at Manchester United, explained the technician to the press. He came back home, to Juventus. And I think he can bring us a lot, especially physically and technically, because he is a step above the others.

Allegri also took the opportunity to “room” his player. “I joked yesterday that Pogba was better at basketball than football. But, precisely, the signatures of Pogba and (Angel) Di Maria are important, so they increase our technical level and relieve some other players of their responsibilities. But, above all, they improve the skill level of our team. That’s why I’m very happy that they are with us now,” concluded the Turin technician.
