Football players across Europe have been enjoying precious family time as they celebrate Christmas. Let’s look at some of them.

Pogba – Manchester United

Pogba probably had the most energetic Christmas celebration.  On his social media accounts, the Man United striker posted a video of himself dancing alongside brothers Florentin and Mathias

In two posts on his account, Mathias wrote: ‘that’s how a party day is going on with the Pogbance united’

Pogba later shared more videos himself, writing: ‘This is what happens when we get together’ and then asking compatriots Benjamin Mendy and Kurt Zouma to join them.

David De Gea – Manchester United

United players’ mood must have been boosted by their last 5-1 win over Cardiff on Saturday, which was their first game under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Red Devils goalkeeper David De Gea was pictured in an amusing snap with his other half, Spanish singer Edurne.

The Spanish shot-stopper was wearing a fluffy white Christmas hat and green glasses with Christmas trees coming out of the top.
