Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has denied Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's claim he was "disrespectful" to the club.
Pogba, 19, left Old Trafford this summer after he failed to negotiate a new contract and has since signed a four-year deal with last season's Scudetto winners.
When confronted with his former manager's comments in the summer, Pogba suggested the Scot had merely reacted negatively.
"I don't know why he said that," Pogba told L'Equipe. "A 19-year-old player who said no to Ferguson - maybe he took it badly?
"There are things about which we failed to agree.
"I don't regret anything. I learnt a lot there. The coach trusted me, but he didn't play me, saying I was too young. He said 'Your time will come' but it didn't come.
"Despite his 25-year career, despite the fact he was the boss, my objective was to play. I am impatient.
Pogba was part of United's much-heralded 2011 FA Youth Cup-winning side which featured outstanding prospects such as Ravel Morrison, Ryan Tunnicliffe and Will Keane.
However the troubled Morrison was sold to West Ham United in January and has since been loaned to Birmingham City. Tunnicliffe started 10 out of 27 appearances on loan at Peterborough United last season and Keane unfortunately suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury while on duty with England's Under 19s in the summer.
Despite switching to Italian football's most successful side, Pogba faces much stiffer competition to break into the Bianconeri midfield whereas at United, a returning Paul Scholes - at 37 - was preferred to the Frenchman despite the squad's infamous midfield malaise.
Having not made the bench for Juve's 4-2 Supercoppa win against Napoli, Pogba acknowledged there is "no guarantee" he will start consistently and revealed "the coach wanted a substitute for [Andrea] Pirlo and [Arturo] Vidal".
"When I was at Manchester United, I have been told I would play."
