Former Man Utd midfielder Pogba praises Ferguson's dressing room manner
Wednesday 14 November 2012
Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has poured scorn on the notion of Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s dictatorial control of a dressing room.
The Frenchman was highly rated at Old Trafford but after failing to gain a sustained run in the first team, refused to extend his contract and departed for Italian champions Juventus at the end of last season.
Now, according to the Daily Telegraph, Pogba has spoken out on his time at United and revealed that Ferguson’s renowned hair-dryer treatment is not as frequent as some may think.
“He is kind of relaxed and he’s a guy who likes to laugh in the dressing room,” said the France Under-21 international.
“Of course you see him on TV all serious, but he knows how to be in the dressing room.”
“Sometimes he shouts, but it is normal for a coach to do so,” Pogba continued. “But it was not always the case; he is more often than not relaxed.”
Pogba has made an impressive start to life in Italy, slowly integrating himself into the first team picture and already scoring two goals from eight appearances in all competitions, with both strikes in the league. Indeed, those eight appearances top the combined total he made in his entire career in Manchester.
