As is known, the continuation of the European Champions League group phase will indeed be rolled out this week. Several exciting matches will be presented, on the 3rd matchdays, including the match between Manchester United and Juventus. The match will be interesting not only because it involves two European giants, but also related to meetings between former players and former clubs.
Cristiano Ronaldo, growing and developing into a top player at Manchester United, will certainly be a special match for this new Juventus player, especially the match takes place at Old Trafford Stadium. But besides the reunion between Ronaldo and Juventus, there is also a reunion between French midfielder Paul Pogba and his former club Juventus. This reunion is of course interesting, due to the fact that Pogba grew and developed with Bianconneri and has had wonderful years with the defending champions of the Italian Serie A.
Pogba was actually a Manchester United academy dropout player, he then left for Juventus in the summer transfer window of 2012. With Juventus the French national team player developed into a great player, helping the club win four Scudetti and move to the European Champions League final in 2015. Naturally, if Pogba felt emotionally reunited with the club he left in 2016 then.
“I had a chance to talk to my brother about this [meeting Juve]. We said: “Can you imagine if United was drawn in the same group as Juventus?”
“But that’s what happened and the meaning is very special for me. My ex and teammate at Juve then exchanged messages, because they would face each other. There are many personal emotions involved. I started the inaugural season in a professional match and scored my debut career at Juve. That’s where I developed as a footballer and I will always have great respect for Juve,” said Pogba on UEFA’s official website.
