Paul Pogba has explained why he left Manchester United for Juventus, claiming that Sir Alex Ferguson’s refusal to give him a proper run in the team helped his decision to move to Italy.

“I’m impatient,” he told FourFourTwo. “It was the feeling that I had. The coach had faith in me, but didn’t put me on. He said that I was too young. He said: ‘Your time will come.’ It didn’t come. But it doesn’t mean I will speak ill of Manchester United. I love the club.”

Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has claimed that Pogba will be leaving Serie A soon.

“He will not stay in Italy much longer,” he told Sport MediaSet. “It all depends on Juventus, to be honest. We have just signed a new deal and we are happy but, if the right moment comes along to leave, we will not let it pass. We will have to wait and see what happens. I don’t know when the right moment comes along. I knew how talented he was but it’s never easy to make such an impact when you bring a young guy to Italy. He has developed incredibly fast. Not even I had expected that.”
