Paul Pogba makes pilgrimage to Mecca as he marks start of Ramadan

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is observing Muslim pilgrimage known as Umrah in the holy Islamic city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Pogba, who has been included in France’s 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russia, said: ‘This a beautiful place. I cannot explain my feeling here. Inshallah [God willing] you all will come here one day. Salam.’

This is not Pogba’s first visit to Mecca having made the pilgrimage at the end of the 2016-17 season where he taught a local how to do his trademark dab celebration.

The Frenchman was undergoing the ‘umrah’ – the non-mandatory pilgrimage to Mecca that can be performed at any time of year.
