One of the most recognized footballer in the world today, Paul Pogba, attended a charity football match aimed at raising funds to provide clean drinking water in Guinea. The Manchester United midfielder, whose parents are from Guinea-Conakry was at the event along with his other two brothers Florentine and Mathias Pogba.
The game was aimed at raising funds to help provide Guinea with clean drinking water.
Despite not gracing the pitch, Pogba said afterward in an interview that “Before being footballers, we are men, we are humans, we are children. My mother who is here, who is Guinean and my father who was Guinean, we want to help our country, it’s the country of our ancestors, of our parents, we want to do something good.”
The match also attracted France internationals Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann. Pogba made a speech, posed for photos and mingled with children in the event dubbed “48h for Guinea.”
Pogba did not play in the game as he is only just recovering from a long injury that has kept him out of action for most of the season so far, the 26-year-old France international is rumored to be interested in a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid and it is believed that he may finally get his wish this summer.
