Pogba follows in Ronaldo’s footsteps with press conference drink removal

·1 min read

Paul Pogba removed a Heineken bottle from the press conference table at Euro 2020, after Cristiano Ronaldo removed two Coca-Cola bottles from his line of sight earlier in the week.

The Frenchman, who put in a man-of-the-match performance in a 1-0 group stage win over Germany on Tuesday, was awaiting questions from the press.

Spotting the bottle of alcohol-free Heineken 0.0, Pogba – who has spoken of his Muslim faith previously – reached over and moved it out of sight.

Pogba’s performance in France’s Euro 2020 opener saw him crowned Star of the Match, for which he was awarded a star-shaped trophy sponsored by Heineken.

“The perfect way to start! Amazing team performance,” he tweeted, alongside a picture of himself smiling with the award.

On Monday, Portugal forward Ronaldo had moved two bottles of Coca-Cola off to the side at a press conference, before holding up a bottle of water and announcing “agua” the Portuguese word for water.
