Paul Pogba joins competitive Call of Duty team
Nobody tell Roy Keane or Graeme Souness about this
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has taken to Twitter to announce that he is joining a competitive Call of Duty team called Verdansk FC.
On Tuesday, the French star tweeted out a cryptic message to his followers, saying "TOMORROW ? ", a tweet which understandably sent many of his followers into overdrive regarding its meaning.

The replies to the tweet were filled with gifs of Jadon Sancho - perhaps Pogba was going all ITK? - but in truth it was always likely to be a commercial venture.
And so it was, as Pogba announced that he was joining Verdansk Sparks, the team which plays in the stadium in Warzone's battle royale map, as part of a partnership with Call of Duty.

We're sure his news will be greeted in a completely normal way by users of social media, and that Pogba will definitely not be inundated with helpful advice that he should focus on his football. Definitely not.
