Paul Pogba told France team-mate Adil Rami he doesn’t know what ‘taciturn’ means after Emmanuel Macron used the word to describe the Man Utd midfielder.
Speaking on Tuesday at the Elysée in Paris for the Legion of Honour presentation to the French World Cup-winning team of 2018, President Macron referred to Pogba as:
Almost certainly the most taciturn member of the bunch.
Sporting an impressive moustache for the occasion, Marseille defender Rami leans into Pogba’s ear and asks him what that word means.
Pogba, who scored in last year’s 4-2 World Cup final win against Croatia, says he doesn’t know before both players turn away grinning.
The Legion of Honour was first established by Napoleon Bonaparte and remains the highest order of merit in France for military and civil achievements.
