Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has spoken for the first time about losing his father, Fassou Antoine Pogba.
Fassou is said to have been treated for a long-term illness before his death at 79 last month.
“When you lose someone you love, you don’t think the same way. And that’s why I say I enjoy life, because it goes very fast.
“I remember when I was talking to my dad and now he’s not here. My dad was a very strong man, very stubborn as well, he fought, but at his age it’s not easy. No, he was a very good man, a very good dad and I’m proud to be his son.
“He was one of the funniest guys ever, so funny. Every time you had time with him you were laughing. Very clever as well, because he was a professor. You have to remember the happy things,” Pogba told Esquire Magazine.
