Paul Pogba: Juventus’ success justifies Manchester United exit

Paul Pogba believes Juventus’ place in this weekend’s Champions League final has justified his decision to leave Manchester United.

The Frenchman joined Man United as a youngster in 2009 but left for Italy three years later following a lack of first-team opportunities.

Since joining Juventus, Pogba, now valued at a reported £58m, has gone from strength to strength and is now considered to be one of the best midfielders in the world.

Pogba insisted he has enjoyed his time at Juventus and that he was right to walk out on Sir Alex Ferguson and United.

Speaking ahead of the final, Pogba said: “Yes, for sure, I am happy with how my time has gone in Turin. I don’t regret it at all. I am very happy here and I enjoy it.

“I am in a Champions League final with Juventus, not Manchester, so things have worked out very well for me.”

Football is full of ifs and buts and Pogba’s departure is still a painful one for United fans to look back on.

However, it is important not to dwell too much on past mistakes. United have had to deal with the departures of top players such as Cristiano Ronaldo before and will most likely have to do the same with David de Gea this summer. Despite the exits, the club always seems to maintain it’s success.
