Unless you’ve been living under a rock on Mars over the past 12 months, you’ll know exactly what the ‘Dab’ is.

One of the people who’ve made it a universally popular *thing*, perhaps more than anyone else, is Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Dab is the Frenchman’s signature move. Heck, he even recently scored the first ‘Dab’ goal during a charity match.

However, according to Pogba himself, that was the final time we’ll see the Dab from him.

We won’t hold our breath, Paul.

Pogba: The Dab is gone

Asked about the Dab during a recent interview with Esquire magazine, the 24-year-old said: "First of all, it started in America with Migos. I started doing it, because I liked the music, I liked the dance, and people loved it because they can do nice videos.

"But Dab is Dab, now it's gone. I think I've done the last Dab of the season.”

Jesse Lingard will be devastated.

Pogba reveals what will replace the Dab

Pogba, however, has a new goal celebration up his sleeve.

“Now it's the Billy dance,” he continued.

The what?

"The Billy dance is created by my friend Billax,” Pogba added. “I call him my brother, he's a football coach now. He's one of the people I grew up with. I played with them when I was a kid and they are still my best friends.

"So that's the dance we have. And I will make sure that everyone does it.

"I'll make sure that it goes on FIFA 18 !"

It turns out that Pogba has already performed the Billy dance in a United shirt.

Following the Red Devils’ Europa League final win over Ajax in May, Pogba showed it off for the first time and a fan recorded the footage and uploaded it to YouTube.
