Paul Pogba's greatest goal? Man Utd star scored Juventus stunner vs Udinese in 2013


Paul Pogba is one of the most talented footballers on the planet.

Although his numbers and consistent output might not compete with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Joshua Kimmich, there’s no denying that he’s right up there when it comes to raw ability.

Besides, when the Frenchman is playing his best football you know that you are only ever a few minutes away from watching him do something that barely anyone in the sport could match.

Pogba’s Juventus spell

From spectacular goals to jaw-dropping diagonal balls, Manchester United fans have been treated to some sensational Pogba moments, but arguably his most entertaining phase came at Juventus.

Whether that was down to Pogba’s younger age or the comparative style of Serie A, football fans look back on the World Cup winner’s time in Turin with a certain level of reverence and nostalgia.

You know how Arsenal fans longingly reflect upon Alexis Sanchez’s swashbuckling entertainment at the Emirates? Yeh, something along those lines.

So, given that Pogba was so often the master entertainer at the Allianz Stadium, we thought that it would be rude not to reflect upon one of the finest moments that he delivered in Italian football.

Pogba’s rollercoaster goal

And for our money, it’s pretty hard to beat what we’ve christened as Pogba’s ‘rollercoaster’ goal against Udinese during his very first season at Juventus.

We say ‘rollercoaster’ because if you drew a line that followed the trajectory of Pogba’s strike on its way to finding the net then it would make a pretty wicked structure for a theme park amusement.

In other words, the ball moved a hell of a lot… so, trust us on this because it really was a goal for the ages and you can check it out both with broadcast footage and a frankly insane fan angle below:

Oh, and to make things even crazier, that wasn’t even the only screamer that Pogba scored during the 4-0 victory. Be sure to check out his other worldie right here.

Back to the ‘rollercoaster’ goal for a second and can we just take a moment to pause and reflect on the fact that it didn’t even get a nomination in the FIFA Puskas Award. Madness.

Now, don’t think that I’m claiming that it’s a better goal than Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s bicycle kick against England, which scooped the 2013 prize, but surely it should have made the top 10.

In fact, having looked back on the other 2013 nominees, we’re inclined to think that it’s better than at least the Neymar, Antonio Di Natale and Peter Ankersen strikes that were put forward.

However, all that said, regardless of whether we think Pogba did enough to strike gold or not, you know you want to watch the goal one more time because, man, that ball went on a journey!
