Leeds vs Man United: Pogba speaks on fasting during Ramadan 2021 and playing

In a piece of related news, Paul Pogba says there are no ill-effects from fasting during Ramadan as he looks forward to hopefully making his 200th senior Manchester United appearance against Leeds United in the English Premier League (EPL) on Sunday.

The Frenchman has taken part in an upcoming fans' Q&A interview, to be published by Manchester United in full at a later date, and several respondents were keen to find out about the matter.

Ramadan 2021 is running between mid-April and mid-May and is observed by Muslims globally as a month of prayer and spiritual reflection.

Faiz, from DR Congo, asked the World Cup winner how he coped with the schedules of training and matches during the holy month.

“I would say now I’m just getting used to it,” the former Juventus man replied.

“I’ve been doing it for years. I have a professional nutritionist as well here, who helps me with what I have to eat and also when I train, he gives me some stuff, some protein, so I don’t lose too much muscle and it’s okay. 

“I’m lucky. It’s not that hot, you know, so I can deal with it. It’s not that hard, you know. It’s okay and it’s for a good cause so it’s good.”

Kick-off at Elland Road is at 14:00 BST on Sunday.
