Paul Pogba trademarks iconic dab celebration as Man Utd star aims to launch lifestyle brand


- Advertisment -

PAUL POGBA has trademarked his famous dab goal celebration — paving the way for the launch of his lifestyle brand.

The Manchester United midfielder, 27, has registered his name and dab celebration in eight different categories covering scores of items such as jewellery, watches, clothing, wallets, perfumes and grooming products.

His distinctive pose, made famous by the star forming two right-angled triangles, was even used in maths question in French schools.

Pogba has now filed documents with the Government’s Intellectual Property Office so he can use ‘Pogba dab’ designs on merchandise.

The French World Cup-winning midfielder, who cost a club-record £89million, is not the first Old Trafford star to trademark their moniker.

Marcus Rashford has protected his name so it cannot be used by anyone else to flog clothes, games or books and digital media.

Pal Jesse Lingard has his own JLingz clothing firm and trademarks over his nickname.

Jonty Warner, a senior associate with Bird and Bird’s Intellectual Property Department in London, said: “First, it bolsters their ability to take action against third parties who may be using the relevant names in the course of trade without consent.

“It also improves their ability to enter into agreements to commercialise their personal brand.

“By way of example, they may wish to licence the trademarks to partners and earn royalties that way.”

Meanwhile, Pogba could still miss Man Utd’s Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on September 19 following his coronavirus scare.

Pogba missed training sessions because he and his wife tested positive for Covid-19, and his fitness is lagging behind as he had to self-isolate

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told MUTV: “Paul’s had a couple of training sessions, so he’s lost out on a few sessions because of the virus, of course.

“But Paul is quick to get fit…. hopefully, he’ll be ready for next weekend. I am not 100 per cent sure, though.”
