Manchester: Star French footballer Paul Pogba and Ivorian winger Amad Diallo held up a Palestine flag on the Old Trafford pitch after Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Fulham in English Premier League.
United midfielder Pogba appeared to be given the flag by a fan as the players made their way around the pitch during the traditional lap of honor after their last home game of the Premier League season.
Great to have the fans back… pray for Palestine 🇵🇸🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/vYMFs6A8pl

Muslim stars displayed the flag in support of Palestine, with around 10,000 fans watching on after coronavirus restrictions were lifted.
Earlier, Leicester players Hamza Choudhury and Wesley Fofana showed support for the Palestinians after Saturday’s 1-0 win against Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
English midfielder Choudhury and French defender Fofana were seen holding a Palestinian flag on the pitch at Wembley.
It must be noted that Israel’s intense bombing campaign on Gaza has killed 213 Palestinians, including 61 children, and wounded more than 1,400 people in over a week of fighting.
