Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba hits out at his former employers Manchester United over their treatment of him.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has criticised his former club Manchester United over their handling of the contract dispute that saw him leave Old Trafford.

The France international accused the Premier League outfit of being "disrespectful" towards him, and making him train alone after he spurned a new deal.

"They left me out because they said I wanted to leave. That is disrespect," Pogba told BBC Sport. "Maybe they didn't think if they were making a mistake.

"I was training alone for one week. They told me to go in the gym. I said 'I am not an athlete, I am a footballer.'"

Pogba, who made just seven substitute appearances during his time in England, left United in July 2012.
