Manchester United star, Paul Pogba, has sent a touching message to Nigeria U-20 international and Wycombe Wanderers midfielder, Nnamdi Ofoborh, following the Chairboys’ promotion to the Championship. 

Wycombe won the League One play-off final with a dramatic 2-1 win over Oxford United at Wembley, with Ofoborh playing a key role as Gareth Ainsworth’s side reached the second tier for the first time in the club’s history. 

Earlier on Monday, die-hard Liverpool fan and Wycombe striker, Adebayo Akinfenwa, received a message from Coach Jurgen Klopp following the famous win and Ofoborh is the latest Chairboys player to receive a message from their Premier League hero. 

Oforboh, on loan from Bournemouth, pleaded the Frenchman for a well done message on social media, tweeting: “I see @darealAkinfenwa getting mad replies from Liverpool players. I think this is the time to say @paulpogba I love you big time…my favourite player ever”.

The Wycombe man put out another tweet, saying: “Honestly, someone must know @paulpogba and if you do, help a bro out man”. 

World Cup winner, Pogba, clearly got hold of Oforboh’s request and filmed himself saying: ‘Yo Nnamdi, what’s up man? It’s your boy PP”. 

“I heard about you, I just wanted to congratulate you on your promotion to the Championship. I heard about your long journey in football and outside football. For sure, it’s not easy; it’s difficult what you did”. 

“I just want to wish you the best – carry on, keep it up, keep doing what you’re doing man. I’m going to be looking after you, and looking at what you’re doing until you get to the Premier League. Keep it up my G, be together, peace man”.

Before joining Bournemouth, Ofoborh had struggled to make his name in the professional game having been released from Tottenham Hotspur and Millwall early in his career, before signing a contract at Bournemouth. 

The 20-year-old joined Wycombe on a loan deal in September from Eddie Howe’s side and has made 21 league appearances for Ainsworth’s side in their promotion-winning season. 

Ofoborh, who scored his first Wycombe goal in the play-off semi-final win over Fleetwood Town, started the Wembley final before being taken off in the 62nd minute. 

Meanwhile, Ofoborh could end up playing Championship football for Bournemouth, with his future next season still undecided.

Ahead of the final, Cherries boss, Eddie Howe, praised the midfielder’s performances during his time at Wycombe.  Howe said: “I think it’s been a hugely productive loan spell for Nnamdi”.

“I’ve always said with Nnamdi, you couldn’t meet a nicer lad. You couldn’t meet someone who’s more dedicated and harder working”. “Always got a big smile on his face. Someone I’ve got a lot of time for”, praised Howe.
