‘I’ve Got Ice In My Blood’: Juventus Star Paul Pogba Takes On Basketball Challenge

‘I’ve Got Ice In My Blood’: Juventus Star Paul Pogba Takes On Basketball Challenge

Normally a showdown between a professional football player and his manager doesn’t end well for one party.

It often results in the player being exiled, transfer listed, frozen out and out of work.

But when you’re Paul Pogba, you can challenge whoever the hell you want.

The Juventus attacker took on boss Massimiliano Allegri at shooting hoops on the training ground this week ahead of their home match against Palermo on Sunday.

Pogba showed a similar level of composure at basketball as he often does on the pitch for Juve and France.

He stormed into a 4-1 lead and looked to be cruising to victory. Pogba even taunted the manager, saying: “I’ve got ice in my blood, I’ve got ice in my blood!”

However, the 23-year-old midfielder was schooled by gaffer Allegri, who went on to pull off a remarkable comeback and thump the Frenchman 16-11 to leave him looking slightly embarrassed.

That’ll teach you not to gloat too soon, Paul.

You can check out the challenge in the video below.
