Paul Pogba made his very first Juventus look in 6 years as the Serie A giants played Mexican club Chivas Guadalajara in a pre-season friendly in Las Vegas on Friday night.
Pogba has actually re-joined his previous club on a long-lasting agreement up until 2026 after ending up being a complimentary representative when his Manchester United offer ended in June.
It marks the start of the Frenchman’s 2nd spell in Turin following the very same relocation he made in 2012 when he left United for Juve as a teen amidst disappointment over an absence of first-team possibilities.
Pogba made his name with Juve, prior to then heading back to Manchester in what was then a world record transfer in the summertime of 2016. But things ultimately soured for him at United under a succession of supervisors therefore this summertime has actually practically resembled a profession reset.
Pogba began Juve’s 2-0 win over Chivas, with Gleison Bremer, Federico Gatti and Angel Di Maria all playing their very first match for the club too. Back in the number 10 t-shirt he formerly abandoned in 2016, Pogba had an early shot on objective which brought a conserve from goalkeeper Jose Rangel.
With Juve leading 1-0 at half-time thanks to a strike from young forward Marco Da Graca, employer Massimiliano Allegri called the modifications and sent an entire brand-new XI for the 2nd 45 minutes.
The 2nd Juve objective came 10 minutes from completion through Mattia Compagnon.
Pre-season continues for Juventus on Tuesday when they play Barcelona in Dallas, prior to then taking a trip to Los Angeles to satisfy Real Madrid 4 days later on.
