PAUL POGBA attended a charity football match in France 24 hours after he missed Manchester United’s victory at Burnley.
The World Cup winner grinned, made a speech, posed for photos and shook hands in Tours at a “48h for Guinea” charity event.
Pogba was present with his brothers Florentin and Mathias and their mother Yeo to raise the profile of the event.
They posed for pictures in a sold out Vallee du Cher stadium, where an All Star France team took on Guinea.
The fundraiser was designed to give children in the African country access to clean drinking water – and there have been both music and sporting events in the French city to raise awareness and cash.
Pogba lent his name to 48h for Guinea along with several prominent French musicians, while fellow world champions Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann have reportedly pledged support.
United won their Premier League clash 2-0 at Burnley to put themselves in with a chance of catching Chelsea for a top four spot.
Goals from Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side a comfortable win at Turf Moor.
The players had been given a day off after the victory and Pogba used his for a good cause.
Pogba had been watching from afar and celebrated with an Instagram Stories post while viewing the action on telly.
After Chelsea’s win at Arsenal, Frank Lampard’s side kept a four-point lead over Manchester United, who play the Gunners next at the Emirates.
Pogba is hoping to be fit for the huge Premier League clash on New Year’s Day.
