Pogba: Why I Didn't Have Crazy Haircuts During World Cup

Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has revealed why he did not have any crazy haircuts – something he is famous for – during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The 25-year-old has often been accused of caring more about his appearance than he does about what he does on the field, a claim he has often refuted.

However, to keep his critics silent, Pogba purposely did not have any colours in his hair at the World Cup in Russia

"A haircut does not prevent you from talking, but I purposely did nothing, to stay low-key," the 25-year-old told RMC.

"Like that, I wasn't going to hear excuses about my haircut. We are going to stay focused. Talk about football, talk about the pitch, talk about performances.

"People say I'm a leader ... I will never say that, you have to show it on the pitch."
