Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says his new anti-racism initiative is aimed at making people understand “we are all one”.

The Frenchman, 26, had wristbands made with the messages “no to racism” and “we are one”, in response to recent incidents of racism in football.

He asked his United team-mates to wear the bands before Thursday’s 4-1 win over Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Pogba, who was racially abused on social media in August, has deliberately avoided trying to get central involvement through world governing body Fifa.
