Pogba admits to being an Arsenal fan before linking up with Man Utd

The France international grew up wanting to follow in the footsteps of a countryman who starred for the Gunners, but quickly changed his allegiance.

Paul Pogba admits to having grown up as an Arsenal supporter who idolised Thierry Henry, with allegiances changing to Manchester United once he linked up with the Red Devils’ youth team.

The World Cup winner was first taken to Old Trafford in 2009, with the decision taken to leave his homeland and go chasing a professional dream in England.

His potential was unlocked by the Red Devils, allowing him to become a senior star across two spells at Old Trafford – the second of which saw an £89 million ($112m) fee required to prise him from Juventus.
