Pogba, a devout Muslim, was seen moving the beer bottle away from his eyesight as he undertook media obligations following France's opening game victory over Germany on Tuesday night with a serious look on his face while looking at the bottle of Heineken placed in front of him.
For Muslims, alcohol is 'haraam' or forbidden, with the Manchester United star's removal of the bottle likely to be due to his unwillingness to endorse the competition's sponsor.
Previously I made a post as regards to similar issue where C Ronaldo removed a Coca-Cola bottles placed in front of him which led to the company suffering a deep loss. Coca-Cola which is one of the official sponsors of Euro 2020, replied on Tuesday with a statement that said "everyone is entitled to their drink preferences" with different "tastes and needs".
In an interview a spokesperson for the Euros told the Associated Press: "Players are offered water, alongside Coca-Cola and Coca Cola Zero Sugar, on arrival at our press conferences." The Portugal captain moved the cola bottles as he sat down to speak to the media at Monday's Euro 2020 press conference ahead of Tuesday's Group F opener against Hungary.
