WATCH: French superstar Paul Pogba performs Umrah ahead of World Cup

Published: Updated:

The world’s former most expensive player, Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, paid a visit to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia this week to perform Umrah.

In an Instagram video he posted for his 22.5 million fans, he describes what it feels like being in such a holy place.

“Only the person who comes here, that can understand the feeling. So I hope the people that never been here yet, they all will one day.”

He added: “This a beautiful place. I cannot explain my feeling here. Inshallah you all will come here one day. Salam.”

This isn’t the first time the Frenchman has visited the holy city. He previously performed Umrah last year after his team won the Europa League.

He uploaded a photo of him looking away from the camera, while gazing at the Kaaba.

Pogba will be travelling soon to the World Cup in Russia. France are one of the favorites to win the coveted competition.
