Manchester United’s footballers, Paul Pogba and Amad Diallo have joined the growing list of celebrities showing solidarity with/for Palestine.
The duo were sighted by Muslim News holding up a Palestinian flag at the end of Manchester United’s match where they drew 1-1 with Fulham in the Premier League on Tuesday.
The gesture was coming barely two days after two of Leicester City players, Hamza Choudhury and Wesley Fofana celebrated their FA Cup final victory over Chelsea by waving the Palestinian flag after the final whistle was blown on Saturday evening.

France international Pogba appeared to be 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.
The displays come amid European Union member states’ call for a ceasefire to end Israeli acts of aggression in Gaza, which has claimed the lives of over 200 Palestinians, including 50 children.
