He gave up on United when Sir Alex Ferguson snubbed him on the New Year’s Eve (2011) clash with Blackburn Rovers.
Pogba said to Sir Alex Ferguson: “Play me, and I will show you if I’m ready or not. Against Blackburn, on December 31, 2011, I was on the bench. Ferguson puts Rafael in midfield with Ji Sung Park. Then I gave up. I was really bummed.
“I joined Juve to silence people who have criticised me, who did not believe in me and said that I would fail.”
Since then, Pogba has become a key component of Antonio Conte’s Juventus side, also winning the Golden Ball for his performances for France at this summer’s Under-20 World Cup.
