Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba says Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson isn't as scary as his reputation suggests.

The France Under 20 international has made an impressive start to life in Italy but has revealed life under Fergie wasn't all that bad, despite his fearsome reputation.

He told Tuttosport: "No, He is kind of relaxed and he's a guy who likes to laugh in the dressing room. Of course you see him on TV all serious, but knows how to be in the dressing room.

"Well, sometimes he shouts, but it is normal for a coach to do so. But it was not always the case; he is more often than not relaxed."
