adidas News Site | Press Resources for all Brands, Sports and Innovations : Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba was born in March 1999 in Lagny-sur-Marne, located in the eastern suburbs of Paris. He is the youngest of three. His two older brothers, Florentin and Mathias, are both professional footballers as well.
 
 
With clear passion and talent for sport early on, Pogba stood out while playing amongst local youth teams, prior to joining Le Havre Athletic Club and then Manchester United in 2009. He remained there for two years, before leaving to sign for Juventus in 2012 at the age of 19.
 
Pogba would go on to have a massive impact at Juventus. He lifted the Serie A trophy in all four of his seasons with the club, also winning two Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana medals as well. This led him to be named as one of the most promising players in Europe by The Guardian in 2014. He was also included on the 23-man shortlist for the Ballon D'Or Award that year - the youngest name on the list at the age of just 21. In 2015, his final year with Juventus, he would lead them to their first UEFA Champion's League Final in 12 years.
 
Impressed by his form, Manchester United offered a then-world record transfer fee, and still the highest to be paid by an English club, to bring him back to the Premier League. In his first year back with The Red Devils, he added to his impressive trophy haul, winning the League Cup and UEFA Europa League.
 
While his brothers opted to represent the Guinean national team, Pogba made the decision at a young age to play for France. He was captain of the side that won the 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup, taking home the Player of the Tournament award in the process. For the senior side, he was crowned Best Young Player at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. At UEFA EURO2016, he was a key figure in the team that finished runners-up. Two years later, they would go one better as Pogba's Les Bleus were crowned World Champions at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
 
While mostly known for his style on the pitch, Pogba remains renowned for making statements off the pitch too with his strong fashion sense.
