Paul Pogba moved to silence critics

Paul Pogba has told French television that he left Manchester United for Juventus in order to prove his critics wrong.

Pogba, 20, stoked controversy when he rejected the opportunity to remain at Le Havre -- where he had come through the youth academy -- to move to Old Trafford in 2009.

However, after becoming frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities under former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, he opted to switch to Juve on a free transfer when his United contract expired in 2012 – provoking an angry response from Ferguson.

But the move has been a success, with Pogba being central to Juventus retaining the Serie A title last term and establishing himself as a France international, as well as helping his country's Under-20 side to the World Cup last summer.

"Coming to Juventus was a way of shutting up a lot of people who had criticised me, who didn't believe in me, who said that I was never going to play," he told TF1, before stressing he was not getting carried away following his meteoric rise.

"I have to stay humble. I still haven't done anything. There are those who have won the World Cup and remained humble," he added.

"That's what I want to do. Score and pick up wins, that's great. The first year we won the scudetto, the Under-20 World Cup, the Super Cup. Things go quickly, very quickly. But it's not finished. We want more of them."
