Rise to Glory
Pogba ultimately opted to transfer to Juventus in early 2012 after disregarding his Manchester United contract. His first goal came in a 2–0 win over Napoli, and he went on to have numerous game-winning performances that season.
Pogba was named Man of the Match against Lazio in August 2013, winning the match 4-0.
Later that year, he was crowned 2013’s Golden Boy for Europe’s greatest young talent.
Pogba has already made headlines and was regarded as one of Europe’s most promising young prospects. He was a vital figure in Juventus’ 2015 Italian league title win, as he led the league in assists. Pogba made 124 appearances for Juventus and scored 24 goals during his time there.
On August 8, 2016, the young Frenchman returned to his previous English club Manchester United for an extravagant sum of €105 million plus €5 million in incentives.
In the 2016-17 season, Pogba played 51 games in all competitions, scoring nine goals and assisting six times, proving to be a highly efficient midfielder for the Red Devils.

Despite a shaky start to Euro 2016, Pogba rediscovered his form in the quarter-final encounter against Iceland, which he won 5-2 by scoring and dominating the midfield.
He contributed to a win against Germany in the semi-finals by assisting Antoine Griezmann, but he lost to Portugal in the finals by one goal.
Pogba’s career has been marked by one constant: a lack of discipline on the pitch. He is really vulnerable to receiving a card and does not always act in the most courteous manner.
After being hit in the face, he was accused of spitting on an opponent player and was sent off.
Football analysts have chastised him for his behaviour and disruptive personality.
