Record number of fans backing Pogba for Euros player prize
Paul Pogba has been in sensational form for Juventus in the past 12 months, and a record number of punters have put their money on the France midfielder claiming the Player of the Tournament prize at Euro 2016.
The 23-year-old starred for the Old Lady as they lifted the Serie A title and a second successive Coppa Italia. A combative presence feared by opposition defenders throughout Italy, he netted 10 times and provided 16 assists.
On the back of those outstanding displays, fans have come out in their droves to back Pogba for the Euro 2016 Player of the Tournament award, with his odds slashed from 16/1 to 9/1 to take the crown.
And with Pogba the favourite runner even among England fans, the bookies are hoping he has a tournament to forget.
The hosts head into this summer’s showpiece as 16/5 favourites to lift yet another trophy on home soil, with 12/1 we see a rematch of the iconic 1984 final when France defeated Spain in Paris.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Get set for the curious sight of home nations fans cheering on one of France’s star men this summer. Pogba will definitely leave the bookies feeling peaky if he leads Les Blues to glory.”
