Pogba Eager To Beat Fiorentina After Sevilla Defeat
Paul Pogba has asked his teammates to forget their UCL loss to Sevilla and instead focus on the clash with Fiorentina.
The loss to Sevilla, and City’s win see Juventus finish as second on the log.
But Pogba wants his colleagues to look towards the crucial clash with Fiorentina.
The France star told Sky Sport Italia : “Our aim in the Champions League was to get through to the knockout stages.
“We could have done so as group winners but weren’t able to. Now we’ll await the draw. We’re Juventus and always want to win, regardless of who we’re up against.
“Now we’ll focus on the game against Fiorentina. They’re playing very well this year and beating them would be a very important result for us.
“We’ll just keep taking one game at a time though, we still haven’t achieved anything.”
After a shocking start to their title defence, Juventus have now won five on the spin in Serie A, six points adrift of leaders Inter and Pogba says they can retain their crown.
“We didn’t begin the season well but we’re making up ground,” Pogba added.
“Do I think we can win the Scudetto? Of course I do. There’s a French expression that says ‘musicians are only paid at the end of the dance’, so we’ll wait until the end of the season and see where we end up.”
