Florentin Pogba: Guinea defender ready for ‘new adventure’

Florentin Pogba is hoping to force his way into the Guinea team for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations

Guinea international Florentin Pogba says he’s ready for a new adventure at Major Soccer League (MLS) champions Atlanta United.

The 28-year-old defender, who is the older brother of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, joins as a free agent.

His move comes after a registration hitch meant he was unable to sign for Spanish second-tier club Elche.

“Thank God a new adventure starts. Hard work pays and will always pay,” Pogba wrote on social media.
