Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has joined Italian champions Juventus in a move that has led manager Sir Alex Ferguson to blast the teenager for a lack of respect.

“Pogba signed for Juventus a long time ago as far as we’re aware,” Ferguson told MUTV on Tuesday.

“(It) is disappointing. I don’t think he showed us any respect at all so, to be honest, I’m quite happy that if they carry on that way, they’re probably better doing it away from us.” 

Pogba, 19, arrived at United from French club Le Havre in 2009, but has made just seven first-team appearances, all from the substitutes’ bench, with the last during a 5-0 win over Wolves last March.

Ferguson added that the future of England left-back Ezekiel Fryers remains unclear. The 19-year-old has also been offered a new contract but has yet to inform United of his decision.

“We haven’t heard anything from Zeki Fryers,” added Ferguson.

“I don’t know what’s happening there but he’s not been in touch with the club. His agent hasn’t been in touch with the club and I can only assume he’ll be back for training.”
