Juventus and Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon has lashed out at Manchester United management team who let Paul Pogba slip through their fingers in 2012. Buffon even suggested that given the degree of their error, perhaps United coaches including Sir Alex Ferguson needed glasses to see Pogba’s potential.
Juventus goal keeper was full of praises for his team mate who will return for their second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. Buffon stressed on how good Pogaba is and he is not surprised to see United coming back pleading him to join them in the summer.
Buffon is not the only Italian raving about Pogba. Earlier in the week Andrea Pirlo claimed that, he did nit believe that Sir Alex Ferguson made the choice of letting Pogba leave at a time where they needed a dynamic midfield player.
Buffon is in agreement with Pirlo as he lashed out at Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United for ignoring the talents of the French Intrnational, Paul Pogba.
Buffon was speaking to Daily Express where he said: “I have been in football many years but the decision of Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United to not play Pogba and let him leave is one of the strangest decisions I have ever seen,” he told the Daily Express.
“Just after a few training sessions, we saw how good he was. It cannot have been the same player they saw in Manchester – we thought they maybe needed glasses!”
