Biography

Paul Pogba needs no introduction to Manchester United fans, having learned his trade at the club before blossoming into a world-class midfielder at Juventus.

The Frenchman, born in Lagny-sur-Marne on the outskirts of Paris, started to attract attention as a schoolboy with Le Havre, before United eventually won the race for his signature. He went on to become a key member of the Under-18s team, and was a driving force in the FA Youth Cup-winning side of 2011. However, hungry to increase his first-team opportunities, Pogba decided to accept an offer to join Italian giants Juventus at the end of that season. Signing a four-year deal with his new club, the then 19-year-old impressed in his first season in Serie A, helping the Bianconeri win the title. His efforts also won him the Golden Boy award in 2013 for the best under-21 player in Europe, the under-20 World Cup with France and the Golden Ball for the tournament’s star player. Pogba went on to win the 2014 World Cup’s best young player award, while his success continued domestically as well, and come the end of the 2015/16 campaign he had claimed his fourth successive Scudetto triumph and appeared in his first Champions League final. After his impressive displays at the 2016 European Championships, Jose Mourinho opted to bring Pogba back to Manchester for a then world-record fee in the summer of 2016. The midfield maestro enjoyed a fine opening season back at Old Trafford, as his imperious energy and supreme confidence on the ball helped his side to win the League Cup and the Europa League. Pogba began the 2017/18 Premier League season in irrepressible form, contributing to four goals in as many games as United stormed to the top of the table, but his momentum was curtailed after sustaining a thigh injury during our 3-0 Champions League win over Basel. The Frenchman's magnum opus for the season came during April’s comeback win over Manchester City, as the midfielder struck twice on our way to a 3-2 win after being 2-0 goals down. Renowned for his incredible fitness, his sublime passing range and his keen eye for goal, Pogba will only improve as time goes on and, as each game goes by, reinforce his reputation as one of the standout players on the planet.
