When Pogba left Man United, the fans were astonished. They had never thought that their star player would leave the team in such a way. It was a tragic thing to happen. Well, football is a sport of passion. The crowds are passionate too. And sometimes, footballers get the brunt of this passion for themselves.
That’s what happened with Pogba too during his exit. There was a huge outcry and many people started threatening him. Pogba even got many death threats. It was a really tragic time for the footballer. There was always a chance that the fans would round up and attack the residence of Pogba. Who knew – maybe a crazed fan might have even run up to him and attacked him.
Pogba needed a protector. He needed to feel safe. And what did he choose? A Rottie of course. Rotties are known to be really protective of their owners. They are very loyal, kind and playful. But if you mess with them, they can be really violent too. But that’s the good thing about Rotties. They are very protective of other people.
Well, the lucky pooch got a lucky home too. Pogba loves the dog. He is caring and has become instant friends with him. Plus, like many celebrities, he does not believe in buying straight from the pet shop. He did buy, but that was from a friend. The healthy and lovely dog cost him around 17,000 euros. Marcus Rashford and Phil Neville are good friends of Pogba and they handed over a Rottie pooch to him. And he just loves it.
Despite all the care that Pogba is taking, he admits that his leave is a tragic one. He mentions that it’s ‘Always sad saying goodbye’. In his Facebook post, you could see his Rottie looking at him eagerly. You can already guess that this lucky Rottie is really happy.
And it seems Pogba is too.
