Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba arrived in Guinea two days back, greatly exciting the nation’s football fans.
The Frenchman, who is most likely to return to Juventus in the following month, was surrounded by bike-riding fans in Conakry as he was greeted like a hero.
Although the France international’s parents and two older brothers were all born in Guinea, he was born in Lagny-Sur-Marne. While his brothers Pelé and Florentin played for Guinea, Pogba was a key player in France’s 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning campaign in Russia.
The midfielder is expected to sign with Juventus as a free agent after his deal with Old Trafford expires. Prior to his move to the Italian giants, Pogba is making the most of his vacation.
In a Twitter video posted by ESPN, the midfielder can be seen being welcomed like a hero in videos Pogba posted on his Instagram account. The Frenchman waved to the crowd wearing the national colors as fans followed his vehicle on foot or mopeds.
He paraded the nation in an open-air convertible as he made his way back to his parent’s home country and he also wore the traditional Dashiki.
