Social media pioneers shared pictures of French star Paul Pogba taking an opportunity to stop for breakfast during his Manchester
United team’s confrontation with Roma on Thursday. United beat Roma 6-2 in the first leg of the European League semi-final, in a match that witnessed the brilliance of Pogba, who scored the fifth goal in the 75th minute.
The performance of Bogba was admired by the followers, and the shot in which he appeared drinking water for breakfast received a wide reaction.
After the match, Pogba answered a question to the French “RMC” channel about his breakfast, and said, “Yes, I ate a few dates and drank water. God has given me strength in this match, and we performed strongly.”
Pogba had previously talked about how he dealt with the month of fasting in light of the matches and continuous training, and he said in statements carried by the official website of Manchester United (manutd.com) earlier, “I would like to say that I got used to that, I have been doing this for years.”
The World Cup-winning player with France added, “I have a dietitian who helps me with what I should eat, gives me advice on dealing with training, and provides me with some special foods that help me.”
“I’m lucky. It’s not hot, so I can deal with it. It’s not that difficult. We are doing this for a good reason, so it’s good.”
