Pogba said: “It is with great respect and emotion that I commit myself to this association which is doing a great job for these young people in difficulty.

“As I myself grew up in Roissy-en-Brie [a suburb of Paris], I know how hard it can be to succeed professionally. I wish from the bottom of my heart that many people will take action for this wonderful cause and that these young people will have a better future both personally and professionally.”

Les Étoiles de la Source aims to help young people aged between 12-25 from disadvantaged neighborhoods by organising cultural and sports eventing. It also provides support for business creation and administrative issues to people from ethic minorities living in France.

Pogba is the association’s honorary president.
