Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has taken a swipe at old club Manchester United, by claiming that his impressive form with the Serie A champions is down to feeling more appreciated, reports talkSPORT.

The 19-year-old has been a revelation in Italy since leaving the Premier League on a free transfer at the end of last season, after failing to agree personal terms on a new contract at Old Trafford.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson was disappointed to lose one of his most promising academy products, but the failure to guarantee Pogba regular first-team football is ultimately what swayed his decision to move away from Manchester United.

Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, was believed to be the driving force behind his uncompromising wage demands, and played an instrumental role in sealing his eventual switch to Juventus.

In hindsight, it's a move that looks to be paying dividends for both player and club, as long as the Frenchman continues his promising early season form.

"Juve is a great club and there are not many differences compared to Manchester United, they are two of the most important clubs in the world," Pogba told Tuttosport.

"The difference here is that I feel appreciated. The players believe in me, the coach believes in me and I have the opportunity to play."
