France International Paul Pogba is confident that he will rediscover his form after some below par performances at the start of the 2015/2016 season and has dismissed suggestions that he is being weighed down by the famous number 10 jersey in Turin.
The former Manchester United midfielder was linked with moves to Barcelona and Chelsea at the summer but hasregistered just once this term and featured in Wednesday’s drab 0-0 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach.
Having been given the iconic number 10 shirt formerly worn by the likes of Michel Platini and Roberto Baggio, Pogba maintains he has the ability to get back to his best.
“I’m not weighed down by the shirt,” he told Mediaset Premium.
“It’s just a number, if it had been anything else nobody would say anything.
“I always want to do well and follow what the coach asks me to do. I’m not interested in anything else, as I’m 100 per cent focused [on improving].”
Pogba then spoke about Juventus performance against Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.
“If I scored [against Monchengladbach] there wouldn’t be any problems. I was angry with Morata and I hope that in the next match he will pass me the ball in the crucial moment.
“But I’m sure that I will score very soon and that I will do better for me and for the club.”
