Twitter has a field day with the #Pogba emoji after his handball nightmare against Liverpool
They say timing is everything when it comes to comedy.
And Paul Pogba has just proved the old adage is absolutely true.
On Friday the French international became the only player in the Premier League with his own official emoji:
He revealed it himself on his Twitter feed on Friday:

Unfortunately, he followed it up by having something of a 'mare against Liverpool on Sunday, culminating in a needless handball in the penalty area, with James Milner converting the resulting spot-kick to put the visitors in the lead in their crunch clash at Old Trafford.
Needless to say, Twitter was sympathetic to the 23-year-old midfielder...
