Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has posted another update from his makeshift training gym at home – this time sporting a freshly shaved head.
The Frenchman, who has been injured for much of the season and last played for United on Boxing Day, is having to build his fitness back up from the confines of his house with the government enacting a lockdown on Monday evening to try and curb the coronavirus pandemic.
United shut down their Carrington facility last week before the announcement, with Pogba already sharing a clip of him training with teammate Victor Lindelof at the ‘PP Arena’, though now he has to work solo.
Recording himself as part of Adidas’ #hometeam initiative, he said: ‘ This is Paul Pogba, aka “La Pioche”. I am at the PP Arena.
‘This is where I spend most of my time at home in confinement.
‘I’m with the little one [his son]. We’re playing football, fooling around. I dribble past him until he grows up and does the same to me!

‘These are the things you can do at home if you have a garden, if you’re inside… ‘Even in a small apartment with a foam ball, like we used to do back in the day. We play, we break things, we say sorry to our parents and go on – I’m kidding!
‘I’ll see you soon, on the pitch. Not this one, the big one! Stay home, OK?’
Pogba is due to be out of contract at Old Trafford next year, prompting fears he could leave this summer with both Real Madrid and Juventus circling, though relations between his agent, Mino Raiola, and United’s hierarchy are reported to have improved and talks over a new deal could be back on the table.
