Paul Pogba has heaped praise on his mum, crediting her as the inspiration for his bold fashion sense.
The Manchester United midfielder is well-known for his flamboyant style, and when asked for the reason behind it, Pogba did not need time to think about his answer.
‘My mum, she knows fashion,’ he said in an interview with YouTubers Poet and Vuj from COPA90. ‘She’s the one who’s been putting colours and stuff, so I saw it from my mum and it’s in the family, you know. Fashion from day one.’

The Manchester United man was representing his club during the interview, wearing another bold item of clothing – a denim jacket with his team’s crest embroidered on the pocket and the back.
He was also asked about his music taste, something his fans will be well aware of from following him on social media.
When questioned about his favourite acts at the moment, the Frenchman said: ‘Lil Uzi Vert’s coming up, he’s coming back. Drake. Lil Uzi Vert’s my guy, I really like it.
‘Ashley Young has been playing the French song [Vegedream – Ramenez La Coupe a La Maison], he loves it.’

Pogba still appears to be on a high after winning the World Cup with France, and he insists that team spirit is behind the country’s success in Russia.
‘At the end of the day, when you’re good with your people next to you, you’re going to die for them,’ he continued.
‘I know, nobody could touch Griezmann, nobody could touch Mbappe, nobody could touch Mendy. Mendy plays for City, I play for United, but for the national team we’re family.’
