PSG goalkeeper Buffon jokes with Pogba: You need to respect me

PSG goalkeeper Gigi Buffon says they go to Champions League opponents Manchester United tomorrow full of respect for the English giants.

Speaking with Sky Italia, Buffon admits he also looks forward to meeting up with former Juventus teammate Paul Pogba.

He said, "It (Old Trafford) is the temple of a great team, which has a very important history, and we play an important game for many reasons.

"It must be faced in a serious way and without regret.

"Two months passed (since the draw) and seeing what happened to us and the evolution that has happened to Manchester, today at least we are equal."

He added: "Pogba? Paul is a golden boy, I always love to see him because he is an incredible champion, of course, I hope he can bring me the respect he owes me and that he is very calm (laughs)."
