Juventus Doing Just Fine Without Pogba

Ethan Tait

Many questions arose with the departure of the French midfielder, Paul Pogba, from Juventus in his record-breaking transfer to Manchester United. How would Juventus cope? Can Juventus still compete? Juventus answered and has kindly replied, “We’re doing just fine.”

With Manchester set to move for Pogba sometime in the summer, Juventus went out in the transfer market and bought in order to make a smooth transition without the Frenchman in the midfield.

Quite honestly, it wasn’t too difficult replacing the overpriced and overhyped Pogba. The Juventus machine is back and better than before.

The additions of Miralem Pjanic, Mario Lemina, and Marko Pjaca have been more than effective in an already talented midfield.

Juventus put their Alvaro Morata and Pogba money to good use in order to buy the overweight Gonzalo Higuain, who somehow keeps scoring with an extra 10 kilos on him.

Massimiliano Allegri commented on the departure of the former star Juventus midfielder following their 3-1 win over Sassuolo.

Yes, I saw the Manchester Derby. Pogba was unimpressive, he was nothing more than a spectator in the stands at times. Am I sad that he is gone? No, we don’t need him. Thank God we sold him when we did or else we wouldn’t be getting much. Without the sale, we don’t get the goal scoring gordito, Higuain. We made some wise decisions.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. The post-Pogba era for Juventus is looking very bright as Higuain could very well be the missing puzzle piece to unlocking their full potential as a side and a European competitor.

It really pains me to admit that the Gonzalo Higuain is a decent footballer in club, but thankfully he’s shite for the national team so I still have something to complain about.

The Argentinean connection of Paulo Dybala and Higuain could prove to be one of the most dangerous forward combos in Europe, rivaling the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller.

Dybala can only get better and learning to score from Higuain might not be the worst thing for the young Argentinean.

Serie A might be pretty shitty at the moment, but Juventus is no joke and are set to compete for a Champions League title because we already know they’ll be winning the Italian league.
