Paul Pogba and Amad Diallo held up a Palestine flag at the end of Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Fulham in the Premier League on Tuesday.

Pogba was greeted and given the flag by a United fan at Old Trafford, as the players made their way around the pitch at full-time after the last home match of the season.

On Saturday, Leicester City’s Hamza Choudhury and Wesley Fofana created headlines by celebrating their FA Cup final win over Chelsea with the Palestine flag at Wembley.

The players’ display of political gesture comes amid the ongoing bombardment on Gaza by the occupying Israel despite growing call from international community to end the attack.

Many top players have already publicly displayed their solidarity with the Palestinians.

The French super star Pogba who had earlier posted on Instagram to pray for Gaza, posted a new image of him holding the Palestine flag on his social media.

In the match in which fans were welcomed back to the Premier League after lifting the Covid-19 restrictions, Edinson Cavani put the hosts in front with a brilliant 40-yard lobbed goal in the 15th minute.

But the home side could not mark the occasion with a victory as relegated Fulham came back to draw at Old Trafford with a late goal in the 76th minute.
