Sir Alex Ferguson’s treatment of Paul Pogba at Manchester United reduced the midfielder to tears, according to the player’s mother.
Pogba spent three years at Old Trafford but made only seven first-team appearances as he struggled to secure a regular role in Ferguson’s midfield.
The France international subsequently moved to Juventus where he has won four Serie A titles, but his mother has revealed how Ferguson attempted to persuade the midfielder to stay at United in 2012.
“I said: ‘What? Ferguson coming to my house! He came alone’,” Yeo Moriba told AFP.
“We had got together with his brothers and we decided: he won’t re-sign.
“Ferguson punished him, he didn’t play him, Paul was alone. He even cried in Ferguson’s office over the way he was treated.”
