If Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard were as good at co-ordinated handshakes as they were at football, it would be them, and not Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who went head-to-head for the Ballon d’Or each year.

The Manchester United duo showed off their moves in the 4-1 win against Fenerbahce earlier in the season. Having become friends during Pogba’s first stint in England, the bromance has reached new levels since the Frenchman’s return.

Secret handshakes are a common theme in the NBA, where teammates greet one another as they make their way onto the court with a fancy routine.

But it’s yet to take off in football. That said, Romelu Lukaku and Dirk Kuyt were among the players to copy Pogba’s dab, so the midfielder has previous when it comes to introducing the latest trends to the football world.

Since they both found the net against Fenerbahce in October, Pogba and Lingard haven’t many opportunities to show us their latest moves. They’ve only scored once between them since but the France international celebrated his goal against Swansea by beating his chest instead of any dance routine.

But it turns out Pogba and Lingard’s handshake isn’t only limited to when either of them scores in a match. The pair showed off their latest routine during Wednesday’s training session ahead of the their Europa League game against Fenerbahce.

Watch the video below.

There’s a time and a place to dance and Twitter certainly doesn’t think it’s 24 hours before an important European fixture.

Check out the response below.

We can only imagine what Roy Keane would have said - or done - if he was still a Man United player.

Important Europa League clash 

Jose Mourinho’s team can ill-afford to lose against Feyenoord tomorrow. The Red Devils are third in Group A, one point behind Fenerbahce and the Dutch side with two group games remaining.
