Manchester United is my home, i will always return, says Pogba

The 23-year-old moved back to Old Trafford during the summer for a world-record fee, joking that he “went on holiday” for his four-year spell with Juventus.


Paul Pogba has described Manchester United as his “house” and always expected to come return.

The 23-year-old moved back to Old Trafford for a world-record fee during the summer, four years after leaving for Juventus for a nominal fee after struggling to break into the first team under Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I have United in my heart,” he told Sky Sports. “It’s my house. When I left I always knew that I would come back. For me, it’s just normal. It’s like I went on holiday and just came back. Seriously. Nothing really changed. I’m the same person.”

Pogba featured in the EFL Cup quarter-final victory over West Ham in midweek and hopes to face Hull City in the semi-finals on the way his first piece of silverware in the United first team.

“I’m looking forward to the semi-final against Hull,” he added. “Hopefully we can get to Wembley.” But there are bigger prizes on his radar in the long term.”

Pogba won Serie A four times with Juventus, adding a further two Coppa Italia trophies as well, but understandably considers the 2015 Champions League final loss as the biggest game of his fledgling career.

“I saw the trophy next to me and we were close to winning and didn’t so it makes me more hungry, you know,” he said. “It gives me more motivation to win it.”
