Paul Pogba has landed in America, and, like Jack Kerouac before him, he’s traveling across the continent — taking to the road in a pink Rolls-Royce with his clique struggling to keep up.
If you see a pink Rolls-Royce come steaming into your town, don’t worry, that’s just “Pogboom” and his band of Merry Pranksters.
Pogba began his great American odyssey earlier this week in Los Angeles, attending the 2016 ESPY Awards at the Microsoft Theater.
Pogba was not nominated for any awards, although Cristiano Ronaldo won the award for Best International Athlete.
PSV Eindhoven have successfully defended their Eredivisie title after a dramatic final day in the Netherlands. Ajax were on top by goal difference and only needed a win against 17th placed De Graafschap to seal the title. It seemed a simple enough proposition, but Frank De Boer's side faltered dramatically and only managed to draw 1-1, leaving the door open for Eindhoven to clinch it.
Dries Mertens is having a fantastic year, and now he can check “perform heartwarming celebration off of his list.” The Belgian winger is currently one of the best attackers in Italy, and while his goal-scoring record (8 in 22 across all competitions) might not not convince you of this, he has played a large roll in putting Napoli at the top of Serie A.
He and his teammates have scored a league leading 45 goals so far. That’s 6 more than the second leading scoring team, Fiorentina, and firmly establishes Napoli as the most potent attack in Italy.
