WATCH: 'I'm here today with Paul Drogba' - Pogba and Mata pranked in a brilliant new video
Paul Pogba and Juan Mata have been unwitting participants in a prank video, as they were set up by their team-mates Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young with a series of comical challenges.
With Young and Lingard urging fake American presenter Mark Kowalski to tease Pogba and Mata through an earpiece, the scene was set for a video that has been released by United’s lead sponsor Chevrolet.
The event did not start well for Pogba, with the brilliantly exciteable presenter getting their names wrong, as he declared:
“This is Mark Kowalski and I’m here today chatting with the world’s most expensive player Paul Drogba,” he declared.
Pogba saw the funning side of the ‘error’ as he offered his seemingly embarrassed sidekick a handshake and laughed through the moment.
Mata was not so amused when his next introduction began: “This is Mark Kowalski and I’m here with Joanne Mata.” Mata’s confused face suggested he didn’t quite know what to think about the slip-up.
While Pogba and Mata clearly suspected all was not right with presenter Kowalski as he urged them to take part in bizarre quizzes, the duo were game for a laugh as they went along with the madness.
Pogba drew the line when he refused to step into chicken outfit, but Mata was prepared to embarrass himself when he donned a football suit, much to the amusement of the on looking Lingard and Young in an adjacent room.
