Pogba: Juve’s heads dropped

Paul Pogba has admitted that Juventus’ heads dropped in the Champions League final once Barcelona regained their lead.

Alvaro Morata cancelled out Ivan Rakitic’s opener to draw the Bianconeri level just before the hour mark in Berlin, but Luis Suarez gave back La Blaugrana the initiative, before Neymar capped off his side’s triumph deep in injury time.

“I think we tried our best, but Barcelona were better than us and they had something that we didn’t have, so congratulations to them,” the midfielder told Sky Sports.

“[On whether Juve believed they had a chance at 1-1], we believed it when we scored [the equaliser] and thought we could win the game.

“But when they scored the second, our heads went a bit down. A final is never [over] and we tried and tried again, but they scored [another] and it killed us.

“Yes, [I should have had a penalty from Dani Alves]. I think the ref made some mistakes but that’s football. We cannot do anything about it, we have to learn.

“I’m not thinking about [my future]. I was thinking about the final and we lost it and the future is ahead so I don’t think about it.”
