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.”
“The Champions League is a trophy I always have in mind. The objective is to win it.”
