I confronted Ferguson- Pogba

POGBA-JUVELONDON, England, May 29- Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba says that he stood up to former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to vent his anger at not being involved in the team.

The 20-year-old only made seven appearances in all competitions in his three-year spell at Old Trafford and he went on to join Juventus last summer.

Pogba has gone on to establish himself as a regular for the Serie A champions and the Frenchman insists that he did the right thing by confronting Ferguson.

“I never disrespected Sir Alex Ferguson, if anything it is the opposite, because I said things to his face,” he told France Football.

“When I knew of Paul Scholes’ return I understood that I would find it difficult to play and that I had to leave United.

“Ferguson told me that in Italy there is a lot of racism and that the fans were not like the Premier League’s. I told him that there was no problem for me so I ended up on the team’s fringes.

“My team-mates gave me the nickname of Nelson Mandela because I was opposed to Ferguson. But I would say no to Obama too.

“Conte, instead, told me that age is not important and that the best players would play. I want to become the best in the world and win the Ballon d’Or.”
