Juventus goal scorer Pogba: Sir Alex told me I'd play for Man Utd

Paul Pogba was full of pride after scoring his first goal for Juventus in victory over Napoli.

The former Manchester United midfielder is proving his talent in Italy, where he is being likened to former Juve star Patrick Vieira.

Juve No2 Angelo Alessio declared: "Paul showed the talent that he shows us every day on the training pitch."

Pogba said: "My celebration? I was pointing at two of my cousins, who had come to the game to support me.

"He (Sir Alex Ferguson) told me that my time would come, but then it never came. And I wanted to play.

"Today was just one game. I won't let it go to my head."
