Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is excited to be returning to face Juventus on Wednesday – “Turin is my home”.
The Frenchman left the Bianconeri to return to Old Trafford in 2016, but credits the Bianconeri with his maturation as a player.
“I was expecting it,” Pogba told RMC Sport when asked about the draw.
“It was crazy, I spoke to my brother in the summer and I said: ‘imagine if we’re in the same group as Juve?’.
“It’s a pleasure for me, Turin is my home and that’s where I scored my first professional goal.
“[Juan] Cuadrado, [Paulo] Dybala, [Leonardo] Bonucci… we still catch up, we speak from time to time.
“We were a family, so of course we stay in touch.
“When you’re alongside players like [Andrea] Pirlo, Gigi [Buffon] or [Giorgio] Chiellini, you can only learn every day in training.
“Even if you’re an established player, you can always learn from men like them.”
Despite his affection for the Old Lady though, Pogba will be seeking three points next week.
“The Champions League is a trophy I always have in mind. The objective is to win it.”
