Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon reckons that Sir Alex Ferguson can’t have been wearing his glasses when watching Pogba in action at Manchester United, as it took just a couple of training sessions with Juventus for his new team-mates to see how wonderfully gifted he is.
The youngster ended his time in the Premier League after becoming disillusioned with life on the periphery of the Red Devils first-team – and will surely have no regrets over walking away from the club.
The 22-year-old has matured tremendously since leaving the Theatre of Dreams – becoming one of the most coveted midfielders in Europe.
Buffon believes Manchester United’s choice to allow the midfielder to leave is the strangest decision he has seen throughout his long career in football.
The Italy hero said, “I have been in football many years but the decision of Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United to not play Pogba and let him leave is one of the strangest I have ever seen” as quoted by Sky Sports.
“After just a few training sessions, we saw how good he was. it cannot have been the same player they saw in Manchester – we thought they maybe needed glasses.
The France international has been linked to Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid in the summer transfer window [via the Daily Star].
He is set to start in the second-leg of Juve’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid, where the winner will meet Barcelona in Berlin for the final next month.
