Juventus midfielder Pogba: I'm better for leaving Man Utd and England

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba feels he's a better player for leaving Manchester United and England. Pogba quit United last year for Juve.

"Why did I choose Italy? Serie A is the university of football, especially at a tactical level. A midfielder who breaks through in Italy can really aspire to be the best in the world in his position.

"I said to myself: 'Paul, Italy is the shortcut to a more secure breakthrough'. And then, of course, was the call of Juventus, one of the biggest clubs in the world…

"I am lucky and I lucked into Antonio Conte. I'm getting better every day. Conte works, hammers, he is not satisfied, hungry, and just wants to win.

"I could not ask for anything better as a teacher at this stage of my career. [France Coach Didier] Deschamps is also very similar to Conte."
