Welcome to the year 2019 where mega star soccer players are confirming MLS signings on Instagram. Paul Pogba — yes, THE Paul Pogba — has confirmed that his brother Florentin Pogba is joining Atlanta United via his Instagram account:

Rumors began of the elder Pogba joining Atlanta earlier this week. The defender was even spotted at the airport travelling with the team to Los Angeles for preseason camp.

While we wait for official confirmation from the club, let’s just take a minute and ponder how cool it is that someone of Pogba’s caliber even knows who Atlanta United is. I’m sure if someone tried to talk to him about the Houston Dynamo he would be extremely confused.

Here’s to hoping Florentin is successful with the Five Stripes and we get a chance to see his little brother come over and hit the golden spike or something...
