Manchester United’s midfielder, Paul Pogba lost his father on Friday night.
Reports in the French media indicated that the death of the 79-year-old Fassou Antoine Pogba was confirmed by his family on Friday night.
The Manchester United player had two months ago posted a photo of his father on a hospital bed as he presented him with a birthday cake on his Instagram’s page.
“Happy birthday dear Dad, I feel blessed to be your son #pogdaddy #fighter #pogbance,” the football player said on his Instagram page.
Fassou is said to have been treated for a long-term illness before his death.
He was in the stands for France’s draw with Switzerland during Euro 2016, with his other two sons Florentin and Mathias wearing shirts saying “Happy Father’s Day” in French.
