    Pogba also accompanied the post with a picture of himself alongside his partner, Maria Zulay and his two sons.

    Maria has over 800,000 followers on Instagram. She is an influential personality and model coupled with being a mother to two lovely boys.

    The Frenchman has been bedeviled by Injuries since his return to Italy. He made his second debut for Juventus after 315 days out of action. 

    Pogba returned for the Old lady after almost a year in the treatment room in Juventus 4-2 victory against City rivals Torino in the Serie A on the 28th of February.

    However, Pogba picked up another injury again after playing just two matches and making a cumulative appearance of 35 minutes.

    Disciplinary reasons kept him out of their UEFA Europa League second leg encounter against German side Freiburg.

    He is expected to be out for 20-30 days after suffering a “low-grade injury to the abductor of his right thigh” and he has started the process towards recovery which would enable him to return to competitive battle on the football pitch in no distant time.

    Pogba spent 6 seasons at Manchester United

    Pogba spent 6 seasons at Manchester United before exiting the club after reportedly refusing to put pen-to-paper on a new deal with the English side. 

    It was reported that Manchester United had offered Paul Pogba two contracts that were above his previous contracts with the club, deals that were worth more than his £290,000 a week wage. 

    He won the UEFA Europa League in his first season after returning to England alongside the Carabao Cup and the Community Shield. 

    The Red Army signed Paul Pogba in 2016 for a then world record fee of 89 million pounds from Juventus after seeing his impressive performances under Antonio Conte. 

    He learnt a lot from Italian football legend, Andre Pirlo but his inconsistency coupled with injuries hampered a career that had a lovely prospect. 

    During his time at Manchester United, he scored 40 goals making 226 appearances in his 6 year stay with the side. 

    In his first stint with Juventus, Pogba netted 34 goals in 174 games for the side and since he returned, he has featured in only two games and has scored no goal. 

    He lifted the Serie A with Juventus on three occasions and the Coppa Italia twice in addition to the Supercoppa Italiana in 2013 and 2015.

    For France, Pogba has scored 11 goals in 91 appearances and was among the victorious 2018 FIFA World Cup team that lifted the tournament.
