Keeper Makes Claim Over Video Game
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has trolled team-mate Paul Pogba with a cutting remark on the midfielder’s Instagram account.
Pogba posted a video to the account advertising the new Call Of Duty 4 video game.
“I love this game #BlackOps4 @CallOfDuty,” Pogba’s told his 30.7 million Instagram followers.
But De Gea shot him down with this savage remark.
“You’ve never picked up a controller in your life.”
Nobody’s sure whether or not De Gea’s comment is true – or how the game’s publisher might react.
Pogba is one of those Instagram ‘influencers’ that advertisers use to try and get their message across. But the added publicity and eyeballs following the exchange between the two players can’t have done the cause much harm.
Pogba’s relationship with De Gea has taken a hit following Jose Mourinho’s outburst towards the Frenchman in the Manchester United dressing room following Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Southampton.
De Gea is waiting until the summer before he makes any decision on his long-term future at the club.
