Paul Pogba has shunned usual footballers post-season hotspots of Las Vegas or Dubai to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.


He has previously visited Mecca to perform the Hajj – a journey every adult Muslim is expected to make in their lifetime.

Pogba posted a clip of him at the holy site and images with the captions “most beautiful thing I’ve seen in my life” and “happy Ramadan”.

Before travelling he put on his Instagram a video of him leaving his Manchester apartment with a suitcase with the message: “On my way to go say thank you for this season. See you soon Manchester! En route to my prayers.”
