Juventus coach Allegri jokes: Pogba won't come back - he's afraid of me!

Juventus coach Max Allegri has joked about Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba's return to Turin.

Pogba is in Bosman talks with Juve about a summer move.

"He won't be back, he is afraid of challenging me," Allegri said, laughing.

The coach was referring to a famous basketball shooting challenge held during Pogba's previous time at Juve.

Pogba had also challenged Allegri to a football shooting challenge in which the coach also emerged as victorious.

“He lost playing with foot and hands. That's why he left. That's the real reason why he left," the coach added.
