The 20-year-old French international who has represented his country at first team level 3 times, scoring 1 goal, left Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer of 2012.
Pogba felt ex-Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson hadn't given him a chance. He revealed the occasion when Rafael and Ji-Sung Park got the nod ahead of him in midfield, as Carrick had to play at center back was the time when he knew his United career was going no where and he wanted out.
When speaking to French TV channel TF1 Pogba said:
I said to Ferguson: Play me, and I will show you if I'm ready or not'.
Patrice has since said his regret at Manchester United not holding onto his French team-mate. Both players are in the French squad for their upcoming games against Australia and Finland.
When Pogba left Old Trafford and joined Juventus he signed on with a four-year contract and has since made just over 40 appearances for the Italian champions. They currently sit in third in the 2013/14 Serie A standings.
His talent on the pitch, his aggression, his presence, is very rare. He very quickly earned the respect of players like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.
It's true that you have to win over the manager too, but to have won the dressing room like he did (was impressive).
It was truly a huge loss when he left the club.
