Interviewed by “GQ”, Paul Pogbamidfielder born in 1993 for Juventus and the French national team, tackles various issues, first of all that of the return to Juventus: “I like to think and say that it is my heart that made the choice. It was also perhaps the right time to come back here. The last three years in Manchester, also conditioned by injuries, did not go as I wanted, it is no mystery . I thought that if we added to this the fact that Juve have also arrived for two years in which they did not win the Scudetto, it was a great challenge for both of us. And maybe it was the right time to meet again and try to take back the place we deserve. , to me and to Juve. And above all to get back to winning. I always want to play, and I want to give my all. And inside of me I know that this shirt is special, it brings out my best. We have built a good history with this team. , which I have never forgotten even when I left Juve. Coming back here is always a motivation for me, an incentive to do well. I never had any doubts that this was my place.
My first experience at Juve? The first time here I was younger and didn’t have the experience I have now. I grew up in personal life, I have two children, a wife, and also as a footballer. I won the World Cup with France, the Europa League with United, I played with great players and a great team. I learned so much there, it was totally different from my previous experience. I had to take more responsibility than I had less here at Juve when I was young and I had experienced players close to me. Now I look at myself and I think I have become like these players, like Pirlohow Buffonhow Chiellini. And now it’s up to me to do what they did to Juve.
Merry? I have always had a very strong relationship with the coach. Nice, honest. He knows me and always pushed me when we were here together. Even when I was in Manchester we kept in touch and talked a lot.
The criticisms? You know, having started playing at a high level very young, I’m used to handling vocals. It’s part of the game: as athletes we live with praise and criticism on a weekly basis, knowing that we must maintain balance and focus on our work.“.
