Pogba sends Ramadan message to Muslims

Sports Brief earlier reported that Paul Pogba joined the Muslim faithful worldwide to begin the fasting of the holy month of Ramadan and has a message for people who share the faith.

The holy month could not have come at a better time for the footballer, who is going through a trying time after he was banned from the sport for four years due to doping.

The former Manchester United star is a practising Muslim. As the people of the religion begin their yearly fast, he took to his Instagram page and shared a photo of himself praying with the caption, Ramadan Kareem.
