Pogba shows off blue hair for France NT, gets trolled by Ben Yedder

He may not be impressing much on the pitch but at least Paul Pogba is dazzling with his hair.

The Manchester United star, who has come under fire of late after failing to make much of an impact in Jose Mourinho's midfield, unveiled his dashing new hairstyle on Instagram.

That colour is a bit risky for a United player isn't it? Perhaps it could be a veiled message that Pogba could be about to cut his losses at Old Trafford and move across Manchester to a local rival playing in blue. That said, Oldham Athletic are fairly well-stocked in midfield at the moment.

As if that wasn't enough, he met up with Sevilla's super sub Wissam Ben Yedder, who was called up by Les Bleus and was the architect of Man United's Champions League exit last week.

Ben Yedder, 27, had never featured for the France senior side but after impressing time and again this season in La Liga, even scoring eight goals in six Champions League appearances, Didier Deschamps gave him a call.

And what a way to begin your Les Bleus career than by meeting the star of the team you just dumped out of Europe.

All in all, it was an eventful day for Pogba upon arrival at Clairefontaine-en-Yvelines as the squad begins preparation for friendlies against Colombia and Russia.
