Paul Pogba has revealed four reasons why he struggled at Manchester United following his move to Juventus.

According to Pogba, constant change of managers, injuries, poor quality Manchester United team and not having a defined role in the team were the reasons why he struggled at Manchester United.

“When you play for a team and change coach every season it’s hard,” Pogba said.

“It’s true that I was injured sometimes. It was a bit of everything. Coach, team, change of roles, these things blocked me a little.

“Now, it’s another Paul, another Pogba and hopefully, I won’t have many injuries, I’ll feel well and play in my role, doing better than in the last seasons.”

Pogba, who won just two trophies during his time at United and both in his first season, said he spoke to Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri even before leaving Old Trafford.

“I spoke to Allegri also when I was at Man United, I spoke to him before coming here,” Pogba continued.

“He is here now, I spent many important years with him. This is the right moment with the right person.

“There were other clubs interested but when I chose Juventus, my heart told me that it was the right destination.

“When I saw Juventus fans sending me messages it was always nice, but I was focused on Man United.

“I’ve thought about coming back in the last year and I did it. I am happy for this and the fans too.”

Pogba added: “I believe in destiny, I am happy with all the choices I’ve made. That’s life.

“I am happy about these years at Manchester, I’ve become a man, I don’t feel I’ve made mistakes.

“I am happy now. Who knows, had I won, choices could have been different.”

He said: “Juventus have always been the No 1 club in Italy, it’s strange not to see them win, but it’s a good thing.

“It’s never easy to win the Scudetto, there are other clubs and it’s never been easy.

“Juventus will always be Juventus. We are here to win, that’s what belongs to Juventus.”
