As Paul Pogba wishes his brother Florentin on a new journey, the latter spoke about the challenge he would face in a new league.

“I need to know a lot more about the Indian Super League. But I have heard about Indian football from legendary footballers like Nicolas Anelka and Robert Pires who plied their trade here,” Florentin told ATK Mohun Bagan’s in-house media after completing his transfer from French club FC Sochaux-Montbéliard.

His brother Paul, who left Manchester United for Juventus, wished him well, posting on Instagram: “I wish you all the best at your new club ATK Mohun Bagan.”

Florentin, a 31-year-old left-sided centre-half, has played in the United States and Turkey also, apart from his stint in the French League. “I feel proud to become a Mariner. ATK Mohun Bagan is a legacy club with massive fan-following, one of the most prestigious clubs in Asia. I’m keen to play in front of 70,000 fans,” he said.

Bagan head coach Juan Ferrando is rebuilding the squad, with an eye to the AFC Cup. Before Florentin, the club signed Australian centre-half Brendan Hamill also. Talking about the former, Ferrando said: “Pogba is someone who can build from the back.”

Pual Pogba Biography, Wiki

Paul Labile Pogba was born on the 15th day of March 1993 to his mother, Yeo Moriba Pogba and father, Fassou Antoine Pogba in Lagny-Sur-Marne, located in the eastern suburbs of Paris, France.

The French star is the youngest among three children born of the union between his parents who are both migrants.

Paul Pogba was given birth months after his mum, Yeo Moriba left Guniea to fully settle in France. Thankfully, having their last-born child abroad secured French citizenship for the proud family.

Prior to his birth, Yeo Moriba and Fassou Antoine had a set of twins named Florentin and Mathias who are Paul Pogba’s elder brothers.

The boys were relatively young at the time their mum traveled abroad to join Fassou Antoine (their Dad) who already lived in France.

During that time, they remained in Conakry, Guinea, which is their home country in Africa.

Shortly after their Yeo Moriba settled in France, Florentin, and Mathias reunited with their parents.

The twins (looking darkish) were happy to flex mummy’s comfort, having endured difficult few years in Guinea, West Africa.

Paul Pogba Career

In October 2009, he made his debut with ‘Manchester United’ as part of their ‘Under-18’ team and performed well enough to maintain his place in the team throughout the season. He remained with the academy team of the club the next season, and in November 2010, he was summoned to be part of club’s reserve team.

In February 2011, he was one of the four players from the reserve team to be included in the first team. He continued playing for the club’s ‘Under-18’ team and helped his club win the ‘Youth Cup.’ In January 2012, he made his ‘Premier League’ debut against the relatively weaker team ‘Stoke City.’

Later that year, he made his debut in the ‘UEFA Europa League.’In 2012, controversially enough, Paul refused to sign a new contract with ‘Manchester United’ and received a lot of flak from the club manager. Soon, he joined ‘Juventus.’ In his first season with the club, he played in the ‘UEFA Champions League’ and the ‘Serie A’ and performed magnificently well in both.

In December 2013, he was named the ‘Golden Boy,’ an honor bestowed upon the best young European player.In January 2014, ‘The Guardian’ named Paul as one of the ten most promising players in Europe. He was one of the key players in the team and made more appearances on the field than any other player of his team.

He secured the ‘Serie A’ title for his team and played a major role in making ‘Juventus’ break into the semi-finals of the ‘Europa League.’ In October 2014, he was named as one of the candidates for the prestigious ‘Ballon d’Or’ award.

He was the youngest player in the run to win the award.He led his team to a ‘Serie A’ win in 2015 and helped them reach the finals of the ‘Champions League.’ ‘Juventus’ achieved this feat for the first time in 12 years. In May 2015, ‘Juventus’ won the ‘Coppa Italia’ trophy.

In July 2015, he was one of the strongest contenders in the race for the ‘UEFA Best Player in Europe’ award and was later accepted as a member of the ‘UEFA Team of the Year.’In August 2016, it was announced that Paul had signed a contract worth £89.3 million with ‘Manchester United.’ This was a new record in itself.

The same month, ‘The Football Association’ announced that Paul would not be included in the club’s team for the first leg of the ‘Premier League’ due to the two yellow cards that were shown to him in his previous match for ‘Juventus.’

He led ‘Manchester United’ into the finals of ‘EFL Cup,’ and in May 2017, he scored the winning goal for his team in the finals of the ‘Europa League.’ This brought an end to the club’s nine-year-long wait for the ‘Europa League’ title.

Paul has been representing the French national team ever since he started playing competitive football. He has been part of the team in almost all the age groups that he was eligible for. Pogba served as the captain of the first and the only French football team that won the ‘FIFA Under-20 World Cup.’
