“My Mother Told Me I Will Return To Man United” – Pogba
Paul Pogba says his mother told him that he would return to Manchester United after he left the club in 2012.
The France international joined Juventus on a free transfer in the summer of 2012 after becoming frustrated due to his lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford.
But despite swapping Manchester for Turin, Pogba says his mother always believed that he would one day make a return to the club.
Pogba told The Official Manchester United Podcast:
“My mother always told me: ‘You will go somewhere but come back.’ She always said this.
“You know mothers – the things she said: ‘You will come back here, don’t worry’ and that was just after [Pogba had left United]. She said you will come back to Manchester, don’t worry, and I did.”Loading...
Pogba returned to United in 2016 for a then world-record fee and he says he came back to finish what he had started at the club which he developed through the youth system.
“When I came back, I was really happy to come back. I left it and didn’t finish. I started something but I didn’t finish. I just went somewhere else – to finish it.
“Obviously, coming back where I started was for me, why I was really happy. Now I’m ready to come as a confirmed player not a youth player.”
