PAUL POGBA went from "cheat" to "class act" with Wolves fans – as he walked over to hand them his shirt.
The midfielder had a blast with home fans straight after they gave him one – for his role in Manchester United's controversial late winner.
Pogba went unpuinished for a "leg breaker" challenge on Ruben Neves in the build-up to Mason Greenwood lashing the only goal at Molineux.
Wolves players and supporters were furious as ref Mike Dean let play continue despite Pogba's studs catching Neves' shin.
After Wolves slipped to an undeserved third straight Premier League defeat, Pogba faced a torrent of criticism from the stands during his post-match TV interview, with some fans labelling him a "cheat".
But the French World Cup winner strode calmly over to home supporters and transformed the mood.
Staying calm and magmanimous, he handed his top to a group of open-mouithed youngsters, whose shock was only matched by their delight.
And jeers from the wider crowd turned to smiles and cheers in appreciation of the 28-year-old's disarming act
As local reporter Samuel Luckhurst described it on Twitter, "Wolves fans were chanting 'cheat, cheat, cheat' at Pogba.
"He then gifted his shirt to a Wolves fan and they applauded him."
And the broader reaction on social media was also very positive.
Comments included "Who can't love this man" and "His haters are his biggest fans".
