Despite the fact that Zlatan and Pogba belong to two different generations of footballers, they have three things in common – they were teammates at Manchester United; they have over 40 million Instagram followers, and they have mad football skills.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba Challenge
When Zlatan began this contest against Pogba almost a week ago, people thought Pogba who just recovered from a series of injuries would not want to accept the challenge.
But the World Cup-winning French international is just too good a player to chicken out from such a challenge despite not having a good feel of the ball for months before the season was interrupted due to coronavirus pandemic.
So far, Pogba has given the Swedish football legend who now plays for AC Milan a good run for his money. He has so far released over three separate videos to counter the videos Zlatan has dropped in a bit to win the football skills challenge.
Five days ago, the Frenchman dropped a video on his Instagram account which he feels was the mother of all the skills he has been showcasing.
In the video, Pogba could be seen with the ball while his child Labile could be seen roaming around the indoor pitch. The Manchester United star stylishly played the ball into a basketball net behind him without looking.
“It was an honour to challenge and beat the lion 🦁 @iamzlatanibrahimovic Now the game is over 🙅🏾♂️#zlatanvspogba”, he captioned the video.

But Zlatan Ibrahimovic would not let him go away just like that. He had to also release his killer football skills video on his Instagram account to counter Pogba‘s skills.

That probably provoked Pogba to release a compilation of all the football skills video he did to challenge Zlatan.
Now, the ball is in your court to decide on who has done better between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.
