Fassou Antoine Pogba, father to Florentin, Mathias and Man Utd’s world record signing was suffering from illness before his death.

The Pogba family revealed the news on Friday evening.

And the French star who was impressing critics during the summer tournament in his homeland had the same message printed on his vest that he wore under the team shirt.
