PAUL POGBA revealed three of the "many problems" he suffered at Manchester United after "following his heart" by rejoining Juventus.
The midfielder, 29, believes "injuries, different managers and positions on the pitch" dented his six-year second spell at Old Trafford.
But the France superstar says those difficulties helped him "grow up" and "become a man".
And now, returning "home" to Juve ahead of many other offers, is "more than a dream".
Pogba won just two medals with United – for Europa League and EFL Cup success in 2016-17.
In contrast, his first stint at Juventus from 2012-16 earned him four successive Serie A titles and two Italian Cup triumphs.

And despite being linked to Real Madrid and PSG, Pogba insisted his top choice was always to go back to the club of his peak years.
He told a press conference on Tuesday: “I’ve been in contact with Max Allegri (Juve manager) also when I was in Manchester.
"I’ve received many bids but my heart said Juventus: I only wanted this comeback.
"I am happy to go home, this is how I feel here.

Pogba's joy at his Juventus return – including posting "Back like I have never left" on social media – angered some United fans on Twitter.
And of his time at Old Trafford, Pogba admitted: “I had many problems in Manchester like injuries, different managers (five) and positions on the pitch.
"The messages from the Juventus fans have always pleased me, even though I was focused on doing well at United.
"Last season, there was only one year left. I thought a lot about my return, and here I am. Now I am happy.
"I believe in destiny, I'm happy with the choices I've made in my life.
"Life is like this. Sometimes you make choices that don't go your way, but I'm happy with the years in Manchester.
