Evra: Losing Pogba big blow to Man Utd

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra admits losing Paul Pogba to Juventus last summer will prove a big blow. Pogba, now 20, left Manchester United on a free transfer in the summer of 2012 and signed for Juventus, who he won the Italian league title in his first season with the club.

"His [Pogba's] talent on the pitch - his aggression, his presence, is very rare," Evra told TF1.

"He very quickly earned the respect of players like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes .

"It's true that have you have to win over the manager too, but to have won the dressing room like he did [was impressive].

"It was truly a huge loss when he left the club."
