Pogba: Leaving Man Utd for Juventus was decision of the heart

Paul Pogba says leaving Manchester United to return to Juventus was a decision of the "heart".

Pogba explained his choice when speaking with GQ Italia.

He said, “I like to think and say that my heart made the choice. Maybe it was also a good time to come back here.

“The last three years in Manchester, also marred by injuries, have not gone as I hoped. It's not a secret. I thought if we added to that the fact that Juve also went two years in which they didn't win the Scudetto, it was a good challenge for both of us. And maybe it was the right time to get together and try to take back the place that belongs to us, to Juve and to me. Above all, I want to win again.

“I always want to play, and I want to give the best of myself. Deep down, I know this shirt is special. It brings out the best in me. We built a great story with this team, which I never forgot even when I left Juve. Coming back here is always a motivation for me, an incentive to do well. I never doubted that was my place.

“I say there is not much difference between playing for Manchester United and Juventus. When you are in a big club, you are in a big club. And Juve have always been the greatest team in Italy."
