Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has claimed living in England as a muslim is hard following the terror attack in Manchester.
The French playmaker said in an interview with Esquire magazine that it is ‘very difficult’ living in Manchester as a Muslim after terror attack.
The £89million-rated midfielder stated that his outrageous transfer fee did not weigh heavily on him as he forgot the transfer fee under one week.
The former Juventus man said: “After one week, I forgot. It’s people that reminded me.
“Because at the end of the day, when you die, the most expensive and the less expensive, they go in the same grave. So I don’t even think about it.”

The 24-year-old also claimed he did not understand Sir Alex Ferguson and his teammates when he first came to England at the age of 16.
“No! No, I couldn’t. At first, I couldn’t. I couldn’t even understand my team-mates with their Mancunian accents.
“They’d speak fast and I’d say, ‘Speak slow, slow… ’ I couldn’t speak. My friends right now, they laugh at me.
“They say, ‘Oh, I remember the first days, you couldn’t speak. And now, you just speak better than us. You speak Mancunian with the accent!’ So it’s funny.”
