Pogba tasks 25-man search party with finding lost diamond earring, promises cash reward

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly offered an undisclosed amount of cash to any of the 25 people he tasked with finding a lost diamond earring.

The Frenchman dispatched a 25-man search party to hunt for the jewelry he misplaced few days ago while attending a training session at the Carrington ground.

But after a fruitless search, Pogba is said to have offered the 25 Manchester United staffs a handsome cash reward, if they managed to locate the prized jewelry.

“Paul’s not been having the best time at the moment at United as everyone knows. He’s been stripped of the captaincy, had a furious burst up with the manager… Throw in losing an earring that cost thousands of pounds… He’s told the staff at the ground that he’ll hand good cash reward if anyone manages to find it for him,” a source was quoted by The Sun.


Pogba’s mishap comes at a time when his relationship with Manchester  United coach Jose Mourinho has broken down.

Muorinho recently stripped Pogba of the club’s vice captaincy following comments the midfielder made regarding United’s style of play.

Pogba, 25, is renowned for his love for expensive jewelry and eye catching haircuts.

But Pogba isn’t the first footballer to offer a reward after losing a piece of expensive jewelry.

Back in 2011, Italian striker Mario Balotelli offered cash reward for whoever found his 10,000 pound (Sh1.3 million) earring which went missing following a collision with Kolo Toure in Manchester City training ground.
