Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has showed support to former Juventus teammate Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi by sporting a Bianconeri shirt whilst training at home.
The Red Devils midfielder is seen training in a ‘Matuidi 14’ shirt, Pogba’s compatriot was the second Juventus player to test positive for the Coronavirus after Rugani.
United centre-back Victor Lindelof can also be seen sporting a ‘Ekdal 6’ jersey, this is in support of the defender’s Sweden teammate Albin Ekdal – who is one of five Sampdoria players to contract Covid-19.

There’s no absolutely no reason for a gesture like this to cause any controversy, this just shows the kind of loyal characters that Pogba and Lindelof are.
On a brighter note, United supporters should be excited to see Pogba sprinting from end to end, the Frenchman has struggled with injuries for most of this season.
