‘HE WAS MY IDOL’

Man Utd newboy Amad Diallo has revelased that team-mate Paul Pogba was his hero.

Speaking in an interview with the club’s official website, he said: “I met him when I was a kid at that trial at Juventus.

“After the session, they asked me who I would like to have a photo with, and I asked for Paul. He was my idol!

“Then, when I received the bid from United and I realised that Paul was here, I didn’t have to think twice and I wanted to come here straight away.

“To be playing with him five years later is incredible.

I could not possibly ever imagine it happening. But these things happen once in a lifetime and, when such occasions come along, you have to seize them.

“To play with Paul five years later is unbelievable, and hard to describe, really.
