Manchester United star Paul Pogba saw the funny side after being abused by West Ham supporters at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The 28-year-old French midfielder, before Michael Carrick dragged him into the tunnel, smiled at Hammer’s fans as they chanted abusive words.
Pogba was happy at the end of the game after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s win against West Ham.
Hammer ace Mark Noble missed a penalty in extra time before Jesse Lingard, who replaced Pogba, scored a late winner in the 73rd minute.
After Pogba congratulated his teammates on a 2–1 victory, he made his way down the tunnel, but was stopped by home fans shouting his name.
Not all of the language was tasteless, but one fan was heard shouting: “Pogba, shut your mouth.”
Other cries of ‘f*** you’ were also captured on video and there’s a good chance they came from the same supporter.
After hearing the abuse, Pogba remained silent and smiled to let West Ham fans know that he was not bothered by his abuses.

Man Utd coach Carrick then tried to diffuse the situation in the safety of the dressing room by dragging his colleague down the tunnel.
Carrick and his boss Solskjaer will expect Pogba to sign a new contract at Old Trafford with just nine months left in his current deal.
The World Cup winner is reportedly interested in extending his stay in Manchester following the return of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has hinted that the player could return to Juventus and rumors suggest Barcelona are also keen to sign him.
Raiola said: “Paul Pogba is out of contract in June, so we will talk with Man Utd and see what happens. Juventus? Paul still loves Turin.
“There is a chance that Pogba will return to Juventus, yes – but it also depends on Juventus’ plans.”
