Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba struggled last night to make an impact for the Italians during their Champions League Group D match against Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, yet the 0-0 result still has the Turin based side topping the Group.
This latest match now sees the French internationals goal drought extended to 12-matches despite Juventus giving him the No.10 shirt to wear at the start of the season, a position from which you would expect goals to come from.
“10 is just a number,” Pogba told Mediaset Premium after the game. “If I’d scored a goal tonight, nobody would’ve asked me about the number.
“It’s true that I have to do what the coach says, but I also have to play my style of football.
“I need patience, I hope a goal will arrive soon and I continue to be at the disposal of the team.”
The 22-year-old was linked with a move to the Premiership last summer with his former club Manchester United along with Chelsea and Manchester City all interested until they learned of the Serie A sides 100 million euro price tag.
As things stand right now the only team seeming eager to sign Pogba is Barcelona, who after a year of being banned from the transfer market find themselves sitting on a hoard of cash, and unless Pogba starts to find the back of the net soon the Catalan giants could pick him up at a discount.
