Chelsea midfielder trolls Paul Pogba after Man United transfer
John Obi Mikel sends a message to Man United signing Paul Pogba on Twitter
John Obi Mikel couldn’t resist a cheeky dig at Paul Pogba after the midfielder completed his move to Manchester United earlier this week.
The France international’s long-running transfer saga came to an end on Tuesday afternoon after Pogba completed a world-record move to Old Trafford.
The 23-year-old won’t make his United debut against Bournemouth in their Premier League opener on Sunday as he serves a one-game suspension carried over from Serie A.
And to compound Pogba’s disappointment, Chelsea veteran Mikel reminded Pogba of an embarrassing incident which occurred during the 2014 World Cup on his Twitter page ahead of the weekend’s Premier League fixtures.

Pogba will have to wait until Chelsea play United at Stamford Bridge on 23 October to exact revenge on the Blues midfielder.
Antonio Conte’s west London side start their Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
The Blues finished in tenth place in the Premier League table last season after a disappointing defence of their top-flight crown.
