Frenchman has just won Lo Scudetto with the Turin giants.
Highly-rated young Juventus midfield player Paul Pogba has revealed that he was never really given a proper chance at his former club Manchester United, reports the Daily Mail.
The France international spent just the one season at Old Trafford in 2011-12, during which time the 20-year-old made only the three Premier League appearances for the Red Devils.
Meanwhile overall, the player appeared in hust seven games in all competitions under Sir Alex Ferguson, resulting in Pogba’s controversial decision to quit United in order to sign for the Serie A champions Juventus in August 2012 on a four-year contract.
And, in the player’s debut campaign in Turin, Pogba played in 27 league fixtures for Antonio Conte’s side, scoring five goals, as Juventus retained their title, while in total he made 37 appearances in all competitions for the ‘Old Lady of Italian Football’.
However, Pogba has now claimed in an interview with France Football that he was never given a proper chance to establish himself in the north west under Ferguson, saying: ‘I’m impatient. Even if I was quite patient, Alex Ferguson told me, “You’re a whisker away from playing … You’re a youngster from the academy, you’re not ready yet. You must be patient. Scholes was, Giggs was.
“I’m not Giggs, I’m not Scholes. I really wanted to play.
“I said, ‘OK no problem.’ If I’m not ready, perhaps I’ll be ready elsewhere. I at least felt ready to have more playing time. He didn’t show me enough that he wanted me in his squad. Even if he said some nice things about me, about my potential, if you don’t show it, it’s all just hot air.
“I came on a few times, I played in the cups, but I wanted to have more playing time. If I could have played in China, I would have gone to China.”
