The France international has established himself as a pivotal player for the Italian champions since his free transfer from Manchester United in the summer of 2012.

"Pogba is one of those players that leaves you with your mouth open," Buffon said to Italian TV show Tiki Taka. "After three or four training sessions, we understood his quality.

"We immediately thought if they saw well at Manchester or not because he is truly impressive."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
