Juventus goalscorer Pogba admits he didn't mean Napoli stunner

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba admits his stunning goal against Napoli wasn't what he planned.

Pogba flicked up the ball and then smashed a volley in off the upright from 23 metres out.

"I am very happy to have scored against Napoli again, as it reminded me of my first goal in Serie A," Pogba told Sky Sport Italia.

"I actually got the first touch wrong, but it went well afterwards! It could've ended up in the stands, but all the players told me to shoot because I'm good from distance, so I try to give it a go.

"If the ball lands in among the fans, then that's fine, but I will keep trying and see where it ends up. It was measured at 101km/h? I'm surprised!"
