Revealed: Man United ace explains reasoning behind goal celebration used in win over Newcastle

Man United and France midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed the reasoning behind the celebration he used in United 4-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

This is according to the Sun, who say that the player’s celebration, which can be seen below, was used as a tribute to people who are suffering from slavery in the African country of Libya.

Pogba’s appearance was his first in over a month, as the player has been out with injury, and it certainly seems as if the player left his mark with his celebration on his return from injury

Since his arrival from Juventus in the summer of 2016, Pogba has been very influential on United.

In 65 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side, the France international has managed to score 12 goals, with the player also managing to pick up nine assists in that time as well.

For Juventus, the midfielder was absolutely superb, as Pogba managed to amass a record of 34 goals and 43 assists in 178 games for the Italian side.

During his time at United so far, Pogba has won a fair bit of silverware. Since his arrival, the Red Devils have managed to win one League Cup, one Europa League and one Community Shield.
