With the Premier League slated to return on June 17, fans are eager to see their favorite sides complete the season that was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The months of lockdown must have certainly seen fans relish find old games of football. As with much of the world’s processes, the pandemic brought to an halt a thriving economy and the change will remain that way with fans restricted from visiting stadiums and cheering their clubs on when games resume.
Likewise, the commentators post-lockdown will be bereft of the steady hum of the stadium to add to their effect.
Paul Pogba appears to be of a similar strain as the French midfielder tried his hand at commentary during a tie-up between Manchester United and Adidas.
Pogba can be seen lending his voice to the Manchester Derby of March, United’s last Premier League game prior to the lockdown which ended 2-0 in favor of the Old Trafford outfit.

The player’s commentary was certainly delightful, particularly the manner in which he narrated Anthony Martial’s opener.
“The King is on the ball… what a pass, what a goal! Anthony scores! Goal! Goal! Goal!”
He was also all praise for Bruno Fernandes for creating the scintillating goal: “What a pass from Bruno, that was work in the training ground I can tell! Look at this pass, look at this vision, look at this finish!
“This is 1-0 for Manchester United at Old Trafford! Anthony Martial has been unbelievable this season and he’s still going! And with Bruno Fernandes, you can see the change! Oh my God! What a goal, what a pass and what a finish!”
With Pogba having recovered from his injury, there’s a strong chance he’ll get to play alongside Fernandes when United take on Tottenham Hotspur in their first game back.
