Manchester United midfielder and current world’s most expensive footballer, Paul Pogba, has always been open about his faith on social media. Over the past year, he’s posted pics on Instagram of himself making Du’a before matches, going to mosque, and donating money to charity for Ramadan.

Ever the humble superstar, Pogba even filmed a fan hitting the dab. Not a great dab, but it’s the thought that counts:

Get ready for the new dab ?

Pogba’s willingness to share these beautiful expressions of his faith on Instagram means millions and millions of people can see what Islam is truly about. Because of this, he’ll always be one of our favourite footballers.
