Paul Pogba wants to be known for football, not 'extravagant hairstyles and dance moves' - Rio Ferdinand

Paul Pogba wants to be known for football, not 'extravagant hairstyles and dance moves' - Rio Ferdinand
From ESPN - April 10, 2018

Rio Ferdinand has challenged Paul Pogba to do his talking on the pitch and ensure his flashy lifestyle does not overshadow his performances.

Pogba scored twice as Manchester United fought back from two goals down to beat Manchester City 3-2 on Saturday.

His second-half display was one of his best in a United shirt, and Ferdinand urged Pogba to focus on replicating that form week after week.

"Paul Pogba was the talk before the game and he went on to make sure he was the talk after it, for the reasons he so desperately wants them to be," Ferdinand wrote on Instagram. "Knowing Paul, he will want to be talked about as a great player, but his extravagant hairstyles and dance moves have too often overshadowed his performances.

"Flashy hair and being seen to enjoy every bit of life is just the way Paul Pogba is and that's his choice, so it must be respected.

"All he has to do is make sure he keeps producing performances and goals like we saw against City. That will be the conversation with him rather than the other stuff."
