French midfielder Paul Pogba has a firm grasp of the English language; he did have a three-year spell in England with Manchester United before leaving for Juventus on a free transfer in 2012, after all.
So while it's no surprise he's able to speak like British folk, sounding like them is something he hasn't quite perfected yet. And it's not for the want of trying.
Pogba was caught on tape trying out his Manchester accent. And yes, it sounds hilarious.
While putting on his boots in the dressing room, and trying his best to sound like a Manc, the player jokingly said: "You not from here, mate. You not from here, Paul."
