All those people who think Pogba made a good move for his career need to reassess the situation.
He's moving to a team that is trying to become a big club again after being a side that was fighting for Champions League football for the last 5 seasons. They have just won the league title after quite a long time. They are still trying to become a big club. Look at Juventus' recent acquisitions. Lucio, Asamoah, and Isla. Then look at their acquisitions in central midfield. They got Asamoah, and they already have Pirlo, Marchisio, Vidal, and Felipe Melo. Seeing as Juventus will often go for a 3-5-2 and possibly switch to a 4-3-3 at times, where will Pogba get his chance? Given that Juventus are still going for the title, Pogba won't get his chance until Juventus have a settled title-winning foundation to build upon. By that time, Pogba would have left for a smaller club to get first-team football.
What will likely happen with Pogba is that he will be under co-ownership with a small Serie A club/Serie B club. By the time he's established and adapted, and Juventus have a lack of depth in midfield, Pogba will be called in, that is if Conte will stay at Juve by that time.
Pogba has made a move out of an established club with a plan for the future to a club that is still building up to be a top club again. Pogba won't get many chances at such a club unless the midfield lacks depth, which won't look likely given that the midfielders in Juventus don't have many injuries.
We don't know if Juventus will go for more midfielders. By the looks of it, they might, given their lack of depth in that department. Pogba will need luck on his side to get first-team football without having much experience and the mentality of a first-team footballer.
Bennykelly:"Pogba signed for Juventus a long time ago as far as we’re aware," Sir Alex told MUTV.
Thoughts? I think he's the definition of a modern day greedy footballer.
JOHN HONG:The people who were shouting at me saying Morrison and Pogba will become stars last year, where are you now?
A very good question John! They are the same people that say we should give our reserves a chance,but want the reserves to stay when we have 30 year olds that are given preference! I dont blame players like Pogba/Rossi/Pique that want to leave because they need to explore their 1st team opportunities elsewhere when they are young and not in their 30's! Look at a player like Pique! Do you think that he's have won that he has now if he decided to stay and be an understudy to Vidic and Ferdinand? He wouldn't have even been selected for his national team squad!
almasi: Michael Ballard.:Who cares? I stopped paying attention to anything involving pogba months ago. Let him go rot in serie a and play for the match fixers.
I BELIEVE YOU CARE THAT'S WHY YOU HAVE WRITTEN IN HERE. EVEN SAF CARES THAT'S WHY HE HAS EXPRESSED HIS DISAPPOINTMENT ON POGBA'S LEAVING THE CLUB.
Michael Ballard.:Who cares? I stopped paying attention to anything involving pogba months ago. Let him go rot in serie a and play for the match fixers.
garp01us:I also stopped carrying poor passing attention to Pogba months ago but there does seem to be a silver lining in this ordeal, after SAF-s comments yesterday on Pogba it seems Nani has had an awakening of sorts and now has backed off his $165+ a week salary demands. Sign him up Gaffa, we've yet to see Nani's full potential and i believe next season he'll rip defenses apart.
