‘I don’t care’: Former Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba has no regrets about leaving Old Trafford

By Chris Bailey

Ex-Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba insists he is not missing life at Old Trafford, after netting twice for new club Juventus at the weekend.

The French midfielder left the Red Devils in the midst of a contract dispute in the summer, with The Old Lady snapping up one of Europe’s hottest prospects.

Now, after helping Serie A leaders Juventus rout Udinese by four goals on Saturday, Pogba is not looking back at what could have been in Manchester.

“Manchester United regret? I don’t care, Manchester United is behind me,” he told Italian television channel Raisport.

“I’m happy to be at Juventus and I don’t think about Manchester United.”

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola also echoes the 19-year-old’s claims and believes the sky is the limit at his new club.

“Paul has said the right thing to say about United,” Raiola told Tuttosport, an Italian newspaper.

“(Alex) Ferguson is no longer part of his life; the present is Juventus and Antonio Conte.

“Paul has to work and keep his feet on the ground; he does not lack anything to become one of the greatest.

“Now is he worth €25 million? It’s not important because Pogba is not for sale.”

Ravel Morrison was another high profile United youth team departure in the summer – opting to join West Ham United – and is currently on-loan to Birmingham City having scored once.
