World’s most expensive footballer, Paul Pogba celebrates his success by going to Makkah in Ramadan

Most infamous sports stars and celebrities celebrate their success and enjoy their holiday time in places like Las Vegas, Dubai or an island to with the nature.

Manchester United midfielder, the world’s most expensive player and most importantly a Muslim, Paul Pogba decided to rejoice his successful first year in the English football league by going to Makkah to thank the One who gave him the success – Allah.

He is currently not only in the best place in the world performing some of the best deeds of worship, but also doing so in the best Islamic month, Ramadan.

Before travelling he put on his Instagram a video of him leaving his Manchester apartment with a suitcase with the message:

“On my way to go say thank you for this season. See you soon Manchester! En route to my prayers.”


As he started on the journey of performing the non-mandatory pilgrimage called Umrah, he was dressed in all white, putting aside all of his worldly fame and status and becoming one like all others present there.

Hairstyle, he got done away with his colourful hairstyles and donned a normal look.

He has previously visited Mecca to perform the Hajj – a journey every adult Muslim is expected to make in their lifetime.
