So he is pursuing avenues outside football and has an acting role in upcoming French film ‘4 Zéros’ – a sequel to 2002 film ‘3 Zéros’ which is set for release in April 2025.

According to French outlet Le Parisien Pogba plays a youth team football coach.

The report adds the French international “appeared relaxed, smiling, available and very comfortable in front of the camera”.

Pogba was filmed in two scenes for the movie, both at the Parc Stadium in Rueil-Malmaison on the outskirts of Paris.

The film is about an aspiring footballer from African country Comoros who dreams of becoming a Paris Saint-Germain star, as a scout looks to discover the next Kylian Mbappe.

Pogba, 31, has also been seen in London since being banned as he watched his childhood friend Kurt Zouma in action for West Ham against Tottenham.

Pogba’s suspension runs from 11 September 2023 – the date he was provisionally banned pending investigation – until 10 September 2027.

The Frenchman has confirmed he is planning to appeal that decision.
