Manchester United star Paul Pogba posted a video of himself training in a Juventus shirt to show support for national teammate and Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi who recently tested positive for Coronavirus.
France International uploaded a video on his Instagram account on Wednesday where he was training at his home wearing a Juventus shirt bearing Blaise Matuidi’s name and number.
The Red Devils’ midfielder was later joined by his Manchester United teammate Victor Lindelof who was wearing Albin Ekdal’s Sampdoria jersey.
Matuidi tested positive for Coronavirus on Tuesday this week according to a statement from Juventus, a situation that triggered Pogba to offer some support for Juventus star, Matuidi
“New training camp is called. Quarantine PP Arena, open 24/7. Having fun working at home with my brother @victorlindelof (Lindelof).
“Supporting our friends @blaisematuidiofficiel (Matuidi) and @albinekdal (Nekdal) and all athletes and people around the world! Be strong, #StayAtHome and be safe!
“(I know the cheeky ones will talk about the Juventus jersey (but) I’m just supporting my friends … that’s all, nothing more).” Pogba wrote on his Instagram account
“Thank you, my brother, this touched me love u. And glad to see you touch the ball.” Matuidi replied to Pogba’s post.
Pogba has not played for Manchester United since December 26 due to an ankle injury.
