Pogba Honours Mother With Ballon d’Or Night Out

Real men have many definitions, one of which is; they make their mothers proud. Say that, and you will refer to Paul Pogba as one. Last night at the Ballon d’Or awards, the 22-year old Juventus midfielder defied the odds, and brought his mother as his date, while everyone else brought their WAGs. Pogba, who had just become the youngest player to join the FIFA FifPro World XI chose the best person to honour his achievement with.

The player’s life has been largely dependent on his mother. Until last year, he was living under her roof, something that prompted Madrid President Florentino Perez to refer to his social life as unstable. She also is the largest influence in his life, instilling religion in him. She acould also be the reason as to why Pogba has still resisted enjoying the plush night life of Europe.

Strapped in a gold-fleted flowery blazer and black trousers with matching shoes, Pogba walked to the podium to receive his FIFA FifPro Award, and the mother’s joy could be seen even to the blind. She clapped enthusiastically and cheered her boy on.
