Paul Pogba stars in latest Adidas ad but some Man Utd fans not impressed

The ad charts the life of the world’s most expensive player from his humble Paris beginnings to his record breaking transfer – and even includes him netting a screamer for the Red Devils.

But United fans have been left wishing he’d perform a bit better on the pitch than on the TV screen following an underwhelming start to his first season since his return to Old Trafford.

The video starts with a portrayal of a very young Pogba doing kick-ups with a watermelon in a market place and getting shouted at by shopkeepers.

The cheeky chap is then shown getting told off by a teacher for being late to class before taking his seat and winking at a young girl sat next to him.

Next the adolescent version of the star is seen kicking a ball around in his room and then striking it out of his window and hitting a car bonnet below.

The amorous side of Pogba isn’t avoided with the towering athlete seen cuddling up to pretty young lady when a man – presumably her father – bursts in the room and shouts his name.

The video then shows his rise in professional football with footage of a spectacular goal he scored against Napoli for Juventus – his previous club.

Then the French international can be seen scoring a fictitious wonder goal for his new club, Manchester United, while wearing Adidas football boots at the end of the video.

United fans wish the pricey player would star scoring goals like that in real life to justify hefty price tag.

One wrote: “This video probably came out at the worst time possible.”

While another joked: “Pogba created nothing against Liverpool.”

The memorable advert is dubbed “Football Needs Creators” and was released by the sportswear manufacturer on Monday (October 17).

And Adidas maintained class is permanent and form is only temporary.

The bio with the video read: “Paul Pogba has always done things his own way since day one, a born Creator. From his childhood in France, to his return to Manchester United, he has made his own rules.”

Manchester United played out a.
