Paul Pogba takes swipe at Man Utd ahead of Juventus move

Paul Pogba has taken another swipe at Manchester United in his new Amazon Prime documentary and says he wants to show them they made a mistake by failing to extend his contract.

The Frenchman is expected to re-join Juventus next month after United confirmed he would leave the club when his contract expires on June 30.




Pogba spent four years at Juventus before signing for the Red Devils in a then-world record deal worth £89m, but largely struggled during his second spell at Old Trafford.

Speaking in The Pogmentary documentary, Pogba said: ‘My thought process is to show Manchester [United] that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract. ‘And to show other clubs that Manchester had made a mistake in not offering me a contract.’




Up until the second-half of the 2021-22 campaign, United were keen to tie Pogba down to a new deal, offering the player at least two deals worth more than his current £290,000-a-week contract.

But Pogba responded to his late agent Mino Raiola’s revelation of United’s contract offer last summer by just revealing he was offered ‘nothing’.

‘How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing?’ Pogba tells Raiola in the documentary, set to be released on Friday. ‘Never seen that.’

While Pogba starred in France’s World Cup win in 2018, he underwhelmed at United, only managing to win the Europa League & League Cup at Old Trafford.




In footage filmed earlier in the year, Raiola said: ‘We must try to make you feel as good as when you are with the French national team. ‘You’re different with them. You understand? You’re another Pogba with the Manchester United team. It’s not normal.

‘With the France team, you’re the real Pogba, the Pogba of Juventus, the Pogba that everyone loves. With Manchester, there’s something blocking you.’
