Paul Pogba: Player History, Teams, and Trophies

Paul Pogba History and Highlights

Paul Pogba constantly catches the eyes of fans and media with both the style of his footballing skills and his hair, one way or another, he finds his way into the limelight. But, to those who’ve seen him at his best, there is clearly a world-class player in Paul Pogba that joins the party when the mood is right.

Yet his time at Manchester United ended in relative animosity, seen as possibly the most expensive mistake in club history. Nevertheless, French fans know that when he plays the right position, he is as talented as any other midfielder he faces and hopes he can drive them forward to more success at the 2022 World Cup.

Starting in France

Paul Pogba comes from a footballing family. His two older brothers were born in Guinea, and both represent the country internationally. However, Paul’s football upbringing came in France, and US Roissy-en-Brie took him on at six to nurture his development.

Moving to Manchester

He was still only 16 when Manchester United came to poach him for their own academy amid contract controversy. Then, by 2011, Pogba got his chance in the first team when he made a number of cup appearances under Alex Ferguson and, by the end of that season, also had a couple of league appearances to his name.

Juventus Come Calling

In 2012, with Pogba’s contract running out and game time not coming fast enough, it was announced that the French midfielder was moving to Juventus. The minutes came quicker in Italy and Pogba soon started making his stamp on the team, scoring the winner against Bologna only a couple of months after his arrival.

Over the next few years, Pogba became of Juventus’ key players and one of the most watchable players in the world as the team dominated Serie A. The seemingly endless highlight reels of his goals and skills had fans everywhere gagging for their team to sign him.

Premier League Return

Very few clubs could meet Juventus’ valuation of the French superstar, and United had to break the then-record transfer fee to bring him back. For £90m, fans expected an immediate impact.

Undoubtedly, there were moments when the impact was huge in his second stint. But they were rarely more than moments. Good form was hard to come by for both the player and the club, and fans grew increasingly frustrated with what they saw as a lack of discipline and motivation.

His best run of form came under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but when that manager’s reign came to an end, it became clear that Pogba’s time was also running out.

Returning to Juventus

Clearly not one to reject second chances, Pogba elected to return to Juventus when his United contract ran out in 2022. Many fans in Manchester were outraged that the club had allowed such an expensive acquisition to underperform for years and then leave for free.

Injury has stopped Pogba from getting into his stride at Juventus so far. Yet his form with France has always been exceptional, and many people suspect it was United that caused the problems as much, if not more than, Pogba. If that is the case, Juventus may have just had a world-class midfielder stroll back through their doors for a second time.

Paul Pogba Trivia

  • Pogba says his footballing role model is Andrea Pirlo, whom he was lucky enough to play alongside at Juventus in 2014.
  • Don’t tell United fans, but Pogba was an Arsenal fan as a kid. The Gunners must be gutted they hadn’t noticed him sooner!
