Paul Pogba made has a trip to the barber ahead of his second debut for Manchester United this Friday against Southampton.
The midfielder completed his world record move to Man United last week, signing for £89m after four rip-roaring years with Juventus.
Pogba was notably delighted upon his return to Manchester, claiming that coming back to Carrington felt like “coming home.”
The 23-year-old, to commemorate his return to Old Trafford, revealed his new haircut via social media with the caption: “new hair, new jersey, new season,” going for a light pink base with a red lightning bolt on the side.
When you become the world’s most expensive footballer of all time, with your debut coinciding with both Jose Mourinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic making their bow at Old Trafford, you wouldn’t think there was much else you could do to stand out. One glance at Pogba’s new top knot and, oh, how wrong was I.
It might just be a haircut, but this latest modification further amplifies Pogba’s image of distinct global fame and marketability, adding to a movie star status that has developed ever since he begun to make his name at Juventus. The eyes of the world will be fixated on the Frenchman this Friday, eagerly anticipating that arrival of not just an exceptional talent, but a performer, a showman, a superstar.
