Footage has emerged of Paul Pogba responding brilliantly to abuse from West Ham fans after Manchester United's late win at The London Stadium earlier today.
The clip shows the World Cup winner embracing the insults that are being thrown his way as he heads down the tunnel at full time. Pogba is eventually dragged away by Manchester United assistant Michael Carrick, teammate Bruno Fernandes.
Pogba dealt with abuse from West Han fans so well

It's alleged that West Ham fans were criticising Pogba's record of assists and labelling him a fraud.

The 28 year old has enjoyed a strong start to the season, impressing in victories against Leeds and Newcastle at Old Trafford earlier in the campaign. However, rumours continue to spread about his future, particularly as his current contract expires next June.
His brother Mathias claims that the midfielder is yet to decide where he'll be playing his football next season and claims he's now 'feeling very good' about life at Old Trafford.
That said, Pogba didn't have his best afternoon in a United shirt today, with the man that replaced him, former Hammer Jesse Lingard, grabbing the headlines with a sublime winner in the final minute of normal time.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær was delighted with Lingard's impact, particularly after the latter's terrible mistake in Tuesday's 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League.
"I'm so happy for him," the Norwegian told MUTV at full-time. "He was low on Tuesday, now high again. He scored against Newcastle, you're up, you're down, you're up- but that's football. You have to live with it and Jesse has learned to deal with ups and downs in football.
Don't worry about it because what we have to worry about is ourselves, what we do, what we say. We're a group, we're together, we work together, stick together through thick and thin. That's never going to be any different. This is a family."
After duelling with West Ham once again on Wednesday night in the League Cup, Pogba and co welcome Aston Villa to Old Trafford next Saturday.
If they're to win that match, United will maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season and potentially move to the top of the table, notions that will make Pogba's blocking out of the haters much, much easier.
