France and Manchester United star player Paul Pogba have revealed that his World Cup medal is one of the things that were stolen from his appointment after it was broken into during their Champions League game against Atletico Madrid. The player secured the medal in 2018, after his side France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final in Moscow with him scoring their third goal.
Paul Pogba Reveals his World Cup Medal was Stolen
Speaking about what was taken, he said: “There were jewels from my mother, my world champion medal.” He also said: “What scared me the most was that my two children were at home with the nanny during this incident.” “She overheard everything, called my wife and security, then locked herself with the boys in a room. For several days, she was shocked.”
Paul Pogba has been with Manchester United since re-joining the club in a then-world record £89m transfer from Juventus in 2016. The player’s contract will run out in the summer at the end of this season. He is currently away with France before friendlies against Ivory Coast and South Africa.
The player said the break is a much-needed one for him, as it will give him a real breath of fresh air and he also wants to have playtime to come back in top form at the club. He said wearing this jersey, representing my country, is more than ever a source of pride.
