Paul Pogba is driving himself around again, having bagged his first
car since moving back to Manchester United.
The French ace has supposedly grown tired of being jokingly called ‘Lady Penelope Pogba’ by United fans, due to being driven to training by a chauffeur every single day. He has gotten rid of his driver, and is now the proud new owner of a Mercedes GLS 4×4 said to be worth around£120,000.
“Pogba looked as pleased as punch with his new car,” said a fan who was present at the time (Mirror). “But it’s not before time that he’s driving again.
“He was spending so much time in the passenger seat, some of the fans were calling him ‘Lady Penelope Pogba’ or ‘Posh Pogba’.
“Even his chauffeur looked a bit like Parker out of Thunderbirds so it became a bit of a standing joke. Pogba’s been at United for three months now so it’s about time he got into the driving seat himself – like all his team-mates.”
