He played for Manchester United youth side before getting his eleven start under the leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson when they bagged their Premier League thanks to a 3-0 win against Leeds United.
“The Frenchman has enjoyed a long association with United, having joined the club’s Academy from Le Havre at the age of just 16.
Pogba quickly progressed through the ranks, first impressing in the Under-18s and then swiftly moving upwards to the Reserves.
He first drew widespread attention as part of the Youth Cup side that achieved the club’s unprecedented 10th success in 2011, playing in both legs of that year’s final against Sheffield United.
The following season, he was granted a first-team debut under Sir Alex Ferguson, in a 3-0 League Cup win away at Leeds United.” Said Manchester United
Due to increased competition at the club, he joined Juventus where he helped them win four consecutive Serie A tittles before making an emotional return to Old Trafford in 2016.
“But in the summer of 2012, due to strong competition for places at Old Trafford, Pogba joined Italian giants Juventus.
He quickly became a success in Piedmont, helping La Vecchia Signora lift four consecutive Serie A titles and a couple of Coppa Italias.
However, in 2016, he made the emotional decision to return to Old Trafford, in a bid to continue the nascent United career he had begun in that breakthrough season of 2011/12.” Said Manchester United.
Pogba played under the management of Jose Mourinho who termed him and Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the outstanding players in his squad. He played a key role in bagging a Europa League cup in 2017.
