In heartwarming scenes posted to Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s Snapchat account, Manchester United stars Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly paid the versatile ace a lovely farewell after his exit.
Fosu-Mensah, a 23-year-old who has now secured the opportunity to regularly show that he’s a quality player, met Bailly and Pogba in the United dressing room at the side’s Carrington training ground.
Pogba expressed that the talent is his ‘brother from another mother’ as he filmed Fosu-Mensah embracing Bailly in a long and emotional hug.
Pogba, who scored a wonderful winner for the Red Devils against Burnley just last night, then exclaimed that he’ll start to ‘watch’ the Bundesliga now – with the plan to put on Leverkusen games ‘straight’ away.
The superstar then added that he’s going to ‘miss’ Fosu-Mensah ‘too much’ in a lovely speech which ended with Pogba exclaiming ‘we remember this day, Wallahi’.
