So How did He Get Here
In 2016 Pogba became the most expensive player in the world when he transferred for a record fee of £89 million from Juventus to Old Trafford. Off course, not many thought he was worth such an amount of money, seeing that Juventus had paid a meager £1.5 million when they bought him from Manchester United.
Pogba actually got a lot of backlash when he refused to extend his deal with Manchester United and opted instead to go to Italy. Well, the young man wasn’t getting enough play time, so how was he going to develop into the player that would command so much money? That move definitely paid off handsomely, he’s the 5th highest paid footballer in the world, it’s no mean feat.
Brief History About Pogba and His Net Worth.
Pogba was born in Lagny-Sur-Marne France in 1993 that makes him 25 years old. His parent were originally from Conakryin Guinea, a French speaking West African country. They moved to France in search as greener pastures, and that was where Paul Pogba was born.
He started playing football at an early as age and at that age he had the makings of a star footballer. At 6 years of age he joined his first football club ‘US Roissy-en-Brie’, and then from there the child prodigy moved to ‘US Torcy’ where he led the under 13 side of the club. From US Torcy he’ll then move to the prestigious Le Havre. At Le Havre, Pogba got international exposure which then saw him move to the English Premier League.
He played his first march in England in 2009, this was no too long after joining Manchester United, and he then climbed the ladder from playing for the U-18 side until 2012 when he then debuted for the senior team. That same year he left England to go all the way to Italy to play for Juventus.
One of the first times the young man really caught my attention was when he scored against the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the 2014 world cup in Brazil, that was in the group of 16 match. Then again at the just concluded world cup, he shined again. Not for his pitch heroics, there weren’t really much, but for his off pitch motivational skills. At the end of the world cup a certain video surfaced on social media. It showed Pogba and his team mates just a few minutes to the final match against Croatia. With his words Pogba motivated his teammates to go out there and want the world cup more than the Croatians and win it for the people of France. The rest they say is history.
Truly the young man has been vilified at other times, but after his words in the dressing room, you just have to look at him in a better light.
