France returned home as World Cup winners on Monday, and the celebrations were in full flow thanks to Manchester United ace Paul Pogba.

In turn, it was a memorable moment for the players and staff involved as they were greeted by thousands of supporters while they celebrated with the trophy on the open-top bus before stepping off and posing for photos at the presidential palace.

As seen in the videos below, despite playing a fundamental role himself in France’s success this summer, Pogba was keen to see others enjoy the limelight as he led a chorus of the Kante chant as well as getting his teammates to have fun with Stephen N’Zonzi too.

The 25-year-old was heavily criticised last season as he struggled to play at his best on a consistent basis for United. Perhaps having played a starring role for France this summer, it could be the platform that he needed to mature and develop into a leader for Jose Mourinho’s side too moving forward.

For now though, it’s pretty clear Pogba knows how to lead the celebrations and he also showed a selfless side of him too with Kante deservedly gaining some attention…
