Juventus’ Paul Pogba celebrates with his teammates Claudio Marchisio (L) and Simone Padoin after scoring against Cagliari on Saturday in Serie A.

LONDON, May 13- Andrea Pirlo says no one at Juventus could believe Manchester United let a player as good as Paul Pogba leave the club.

The French midfielder joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer in 2012 after expressing his unhappiness at a lack of first-team opportunities under former Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

And Pirlo says there was a feeling of disbelief in Turin when they realised what a talent the 22-year-old is.

“When he arrived, we didn’t really know that much about him as a player, but it soon became clear how special he was,” Pirlo told the Daily Mirror.

“I remember the players were almost in disbelief. We couldn’t believe a club like Manchester United had let a player this good go. He has become the best young central midfield player in Europe, I am sure they regret it every day.

“Sir Alex Ferguson had so much success as Manchester United manager and made very few bad decisions, but letting Pogba leave was one of them.”
