He has often been mocked for his improbable cuts. But on Saturday, Paul Pogba used his hair for a message close to his heart. The Frenchman from Manchester United, who faced Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League, disputed the match with a raised fist drawn on the left of the skull. A tribute to the militant anti-racist movement “Black Lives Matter” whose gesture is one of the symbols.

Before the match, disputed in an Old Trafford empty pandemic of Covid-19 obliges, the French midfielder and the other players put the knee on the ground, one of the other signs of this movement, appeared in 2013 and relaunched after the death of George Floyd, killed by a police officer in the United States on May 25. A classic gesture since the resumption of the Premier League in mid-June. The Frenchman also clenched his fist and held it up to the sky.

Victim of racist insults on social networks in August 2019 after missing a penalty, the Frenchman reacted by saying he wanted to “fight for the next generation”. Another of his Mancunian partners, Marcus Rashford, had been targeted by similar insults.

Winner of his match against Bournemouth (5-2), Manchester United temporarily took fourth place in the English championship before the meeting between Chelsea and Watford in the evening. Frenchman Anthony Martial distinguished himself with a superb goal at the end of the first period.
