JTv: Thanks for joining us, Paul! To kick things off, what does Juventus mean to you?
Paul Pogba: “Juve is the club that really showed belief in me as a youngster and helped me develop into the player I am today. It was here that I scored my first goal as a professional and was given the opportunity to prove myself in competitive action every week, so for that reason Juventus will always be close to my heart.”
JTv: Which victory do you look back on with the most fondness?
PP: "My favourite win would have to be against Napoli when I scored my first goal in the black and white.”
JTv: What will your approach be for the Manchester City match? Will you go out to win or to play cautiously and keep your eye on the result from the other game in the group?
PP: "We go out to win every match we play. As for Manchester City specifically, the most important thing is to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League. If that means drawing in a couple of weeks then so be it, but our first priority is always to leave the field as winners.”
JTv: How do you go about turning around a difficult start to the season?
PP: “Every day is the same for me. I go to work and put the hard yards in on the training field to make sure I’m ready for our next match, that kind of thing never changes regardless of what form you are in.
“Football is a strange game, one week you can score a hat-trick and the next you might not play as well but the thing that really keeps me going is the knowledge that when I go home I’ll always be happy, because I have my family and friends behind me.
"Whenever I cross the white line I want to learn, improve and give my all. So I guess I’d say that the level of effort I put into my game is always the same whether I’m on a great run or not.”
