The Manchester United midfielder announced his “next chapter” on Twitter, telling fans that he had joined Verdansk FC.
Fortunately, however, it’s all part of a publicity stunt involving Call of Duty Warzone Season 5.
The France World Cup winner is partnering with the newly formed club from Call of Duty’s Battle Royale spinoff.
“In a message on Pogba’s Twitter channel this week, the 27 year-old revealed he has his sights on working with a new club in Eastern Europe that has only opened up its Stadium this Summer but already boasts a 75m-strong legion of fans around the world.
“Verdansk FC (a.k.a. the Verdansk Sparks) is a football team based in the country of Kastovia, and following the opening of Verdansk Stadium to mark the beginning of Season 5 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, the club has announced Pogba as its first major signing.”
The Verdansk FC Stadium is a fictional location found in the huge Call of Duty Warzone map. Fans have been able to battle in the new location since the start of Season 5 earlier this month.
“Players in Warzone can drop in to Verdansk FC Stadium – nicknamed the National Acropolis Arena – now, just one of a number of new locations added in Season 5.
“Other locations include the Train Station interior and a colossal, continuously moving freight train to claim as a mobile base of operations.”
Pogba has also revealed his favourite Call of Duty Warzone loadout, revealing that he favours the Glitch Bruen MK9 as his main.
