WATCH: Pogba congratulates Bournemouth youngster Ofoborh after Wycombe promotion

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has sent his congratulations to Nnamdi Ofoborh after Wycombe Wanderers' promotion.

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

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".

And 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."
