Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic preach ‘Equal Game’ in viral ad

Manchester United star turns Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have taken time off the football field to make a pitch of their own in support of Uefa’s ‘Equal Game’ initiative which states that all races and creeds be able to enjoy the beautiful game.

In the piece, an inquisitive Ibrahomovic asks his colleague what his Equal Game T-shirt is all about, to which Pogba replies ‘it’s not my style’. An unimpressed Ibrahomovich responds that ‘it’s not my style’, before sneakily picking up an Equal Game goody bag on his way out the door when no-one is looking.

That's my guy @iamzlatanibrahimovic #EqualGame @uefa_official equalgame.com

Since Pogba published the scripted exchange on Instagram the video has racked up over 1.2m views.

In their own words Uefa described the push as enabling ‘everyone should be able to enjoy football. No matter who you are, where you’re from or how you play. That’s Equal Game.’

Pogba and Ibrahimovic are but the latest players to lend their support to the campaign which has already been given high-profile support from the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
