Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has recently been racially abused online for wanting to leave the club across the transfer window, along with openly wishing to make it to Real Madrid. Now, some fans are going the extra and spray painting their desire over signboards outside the training grounds.
Just two weeks after the club hierarchy erected a board outside their Carrington headquarter, which read: “Players are not permitted to stop and sign autographs due to danger on the road. No congregating”, has been grossly spray painted with the phrase ‘POGBA OUT’ in red.
Here’s a photo of the board, courtesy to utdreport’s Twitter account.

This comes just a week after the 26 year old Frenchman became a victim of racism, as various abuses were directed at the player online after missing the penalty in the match against Wolves.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner released a statement on his Twitter following the attack.
“My ancestors and my parents suffered for my generation to be free today, to work, to take the bus, to play football. Racist insults are ignorance and can only make me stronger and motivate me to fight for the next generation.” the tweet read, along with supports from teammates.
United are travelling to St Mary’s Stadium this Saturday to face Southampton in their upcoming Premier League fixture.
