Pogba admits Man City chief Vieira influenced Juventus choice

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits Manchester City chief Patrick Vieira influenced his decision to join Juventus over the summer.

Pogba's Bosman switch angered United manager Sir Alex Ferguson at the time.

He told Sky Italia: "There were other teams I could have joined.

"Like AC Milan and other clubs in Italy. I signed for Juventus because Platini and Zidane played there and many other French players. I spoke with Vieira and he told me to come to Juve."
