Pogba celebrates his 29th birthday – Man United fans send interesting wishes

Paul Pogba is celebrating his 29th birthday on 15th March, 2022 – the same day as Man United’s key Champions League game against Atletico Madrid.

The Frenchman will hope for the perfect present by helping guide his side to the quarter-finals with a win against Atletico.

Pogba re-joined the Red Devils from Juventus at the age of 24 and has arguably spent his best years with United, but had mixed results.

United fans on social media have sent their birthday wishes to the midfielder with some interesting messages.

Kvn419 (via Reddit): “HBD PP! I have a strong urge to slap that bald head of yours… in a loving way.”

Jmdwinter (via Reddit): “Happy birthday mate! At the very least, Paul’s infectious enthusiasm for playing the game is what I will remember most about his 6 years at OT. Always smiling, silly haircut and the occasional Pogbanger. Maybe he can deliver a few more masterclasses before he sails off into the sunset.”

Alousow (via Reddit): “29 already? Man The guy wasted his career at United no disrespect. Should have stay at juve. I guess the grasss not always greener.”

Cspotthebestspot (via Reddit): “On his day the man is untouchable. HBD Pogba. Would it be too selfish to hope he stays?”

@MarkGoldbridge (via Twitter): “Pogba 29 today. Where did the years go? Where did it go wrong? Fantastic talent we failed to get the best out of.”
