Paul Pogba Reveals What He Spent His First Wage Packet On
After graduating from Manchester United's academy, Paul Pogba soon began to rake in some serious cash, and in a recent interview he's revealed what he spent his first wage packet on.
A few appearances for United prompted a move to Italy by signing with Juventus. But United splashed out a record transfer fee to lure the Frenchman back to Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old is now reportedly earning a massive £290,000-a-week. While it's a far cry from his early days, Pogba still raked in a nice sum of money.

And speaking to Esquire, the midfielder admitted to buying a pair of Louboutins with his first wages as a 18/19-year-old.
"This I will always remember all my life. I was 18 or 19 and I bought my first pair of Louboutins; they were white. I bought two pairs, actually," he said via Goal.
But he's vowed to never buy them again. "I didn't go out for one month after that, I didn't buy anything, I was so shocked. I said, 'I'll never buy any Louboutins again!"
"It was funny because when you know the value of money, when people don't have money, you feel a bit weird. You feel, 'Wow, it's a lot of money for a pair of shoes.' Life goes fast, so do something that makes you happy and just enjoy life, but it doesn't mean you forget about other people.

Unfortunately for him, someone nabbed his expensive shoes.
"Guess what? I got robbed in Italy and they stole my shoes."
Before issuing a message to the person who stole them.
"So please, the guy who robbed me, can you send me the shoes, please? It's very important for me. Keep the rest, just bring the shoes."
