Pogba shows Man United what they are missing

Former Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba produced a sensational performance for Juventus on Saturday which sent a clear message to Sir Alex Ferguson

The talented Frenchman was signed by United in 2009 and played only three games for the Red Devils before moving to Juventus in a deal that was heavily criticised by fans of the club.

On Saturday night in Turin, he showed any United on lookers exactly what they were missing as he helped Juventus to a 4-0 win over Udinese, a win that sees Juve sit five points clear of second-placed Lazio.

The 19-year-old scored an unbelievable 30-yard-old volley before thundering home a superb and similar effort in the second half.

Pogba told Italian media after the game of his delight, saying it had been 'a beautiful night, especially marked by that goal.'

'It's important to always win, but it is also essential to think about the next game.'

When asked about his time in Manchester, Pogba said: 'I do not care, Manchester United is behind me. I'm happy to be at Juventus, I do not think at Manchester United.'

Meanwhile, Lazio who are trailing the league leaders slipped up as they could only draw 2-2 with Palermo.

Sunday's game in Italy saw Milan snatch three points against Bologna after Giampaolo Pazzini refound some his old form. Elsewhere, Catania stunned Genoa, Siena beat Sampdoria and Torino hammered Pescara.
