Paul Pogba responds to critics after being filmed on skiing holiday

Pogba has yet to play a game for Juventus since re-signing for the Italian side.

Paul Pogba has responded to his critics by dancing in the snow while on holiday skiing. Pogba is yet to make an appearance for Juventus since rejoining them from Manchester United on a free transfer in the summer due to injury troubles.

The Frenchman suffered a meniscus knee injury in July and then a thigh injury in October which ruled him out of France’s squad for the World Cup.

But fans have been left confused as to why the 29-year-old has gone on holiday skiing despite his recent setbacks.

Italian outlet Tuttosport has said that Juventus supporters have become ‘agitated’ and fear that there is a risk he could aggravate the injury and further delay his wait to play for the Bianconeri once more.

However, Pogba, who has clearly been alerted to the fans’ concerns, responded to the ongoing worry.

A video posted to his Instagram on Thursday, addressed to his 56.4m followers, was captioned: “Me skiing for those who were wondering,” followed by a skiing emoji and laughing face emoji.

In the video Pogba turns to the camera, smiling, before pretending to ski as a way of showing how his holiday hadn’t made any impact on his injury.

His video comes after he posted a series of photos to his account. One features Pogba wearing ski goggles and wearing a thick coat in front of a mountain, walking through the snow with the caption: “Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.”

There is no current timescale on when Pogba is set to be in contention to play for the Italian side.
