Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has accused Paul Pogba of a lack of respect after revealing the midfielder was joining Juventus.

Pogba, 19, made just seven senior appearances for the Red Devils but was viewed as a rising star and a likely first-team regular. The Frenchman's contract expired this summer but United were keen to extend his stay and offered him fresh terms as well as the chance for great first-team opportunities next season.

But a move to Turin now looks on the cards, although the deal has not yet been confirmed by the Italian champions. Ferguson made little attempt to hide his displeasure at Pogba's decision. The Scot told MUTV: "Pogba signed for Juventus a long time ago as far as we're aware. "(It) is disappointing. I don't think he showed us any respect at all, to be honest."
