WATCH: Paul Pogba And Juan Mata Star In Brilliant Man United Prank

Manchester United players Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young teamed up with club sponsor Chevrolet to prank teammates Paul Pogba and Juan Mata.

The United pair were led to believe they were filming a couple of standard interviews but it wasn't the case at all.

With Young and Lingard channeling their inner Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway, they screw with their teammates big time by providing instructions into the ears of a couple of actors.


Their antics include getting an American presenter to deliberately get the names of both Pogba and Mata wrong, as well as having a crazed United fan waltz in and ask Pogba to sign his chest along with trying to get Mata to have a 'dab selfie' with him - Lingard was definitely all over that one.

As pranks involving footballers go, this one is right up there and United duo Young and Lingard were absolutely loving it.

Though to be fair, Pogba and Mata were good sports and weren't too put off by the bizarre requests and gaffes.


You might expect them to be a bit offended when referred to as "Paul Drogba" and "Joanne Mata" in the clip but they were remarkably chilled and laid-back throughout.

United fans will no doubt be all over this prank, although they will also no doubt be hoping that both Pogba and Mata will be back from injury sooner rather than later, with games coming thick and fast for Jose Mourinho's side.
