Paul Pogba and Amad Diallo Hold Up the Palestinian Flag

Paul Pogba and Amad Diallo Hold Up the Palestinian Flag

Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Fulham last night saw Paul Pogba and Amad Diallo hold up the Palestinian flag post-match.

Some days earlier, Wesley Fofana and Hamza Choudhary celebrated Leicester City’s 0-1 FA Cup final win in a similar manner.

After their triumph over Chelsea, the two players held up the flag of Palestine. They bravely raised a flag in solidarity for Palestinians’ suffering under the reign of the Israeli Defence Force (IDF).

Other players, like Mohamed Elneny (with a backlash from Arsenal’s sponsors), tweeted their support.

Footballers thus declared their online support for Palestine as Israel threatened them with forceful evictions, air strikes, and police brutality.

Pogba was among them, and he has now emulated Fofana and Choudhary in holding up Palestine’s flag.

Pogba and Amad, both of Islamic faith, have issued their support of Palestine suffering a decades-long, ongoing apartheid regime.

What Their Coach Thinks

After Pogba and Diallo’s political stance yesterday, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shown them his support.

He says that the views of players should be respected, following Tuesday’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Fulham.

“If my players think about other things than football, that’s a positive thing and I think we’ve seen that with some of the players before that they do care about,” says Solskjaer.
