Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard celebrate goals against Fenerbahce

Paul Pogba answered the critics last night with an impressive two-goal performance against Fenerbahce.

The £89 million man was under increasing pressure to show just why Manchester United made him the world’s most expensive player in August, having scored just once prior to last night’s Europa League fixture.

But an assured penalty, dispatched after he asked Wayne Rooney for the honours, and a curling effort from outside of the box, hinted that Pogba’s best is just around the corner.

The 23-year-old provided tenacity and power in midfield as Jose Mourinho’s side ran out 4-1 winners.

His attributes are, however, just one aspect of his game. How can we not talk about the celebrations?

Pogba and Lingard's routines

Just like how Cam Newton made the ‘dab’ famous in the NFL, Pogba introduced the craze to England. It’s since been performed by, well, pretty much everybody.

Pogba’s teammate Jesse Lingard showed us just exactly what the ‘hit them folks’ dance is, performing it after scoring for United in their Community Shield win against Leicester City.

So it made complete sense for the pair to come together to show off their routines after combining to score United’s second last night.

After the Frenchman smashed Lingard’s lay-off into the top corner, they convened to perform the hit them folks.

Thought that was the end of their choreographed dances? Think again.

When Lingard scored United’s fourth goal, Pogba ran over to perform their version of the dab.

Twitter's mixed reaction

The general consensus on Twitter appears to be that if you’re a Man United fan, you love the celebrations. If not, then you’re disgusted and never, ever want to see them again.
