The football stars took to social media to send special messages to victims of slavery in the north African country

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and Everton’s Idrissa Gueye have shown their solidarity against slavery in Libya.

Following a shocking footage of young African migrants being sold for as low as 400 dollars in slave markets in Libya.

Pogba displayed a solidarity gesture by crossing his wrists together after scoring his third Premier League goal of the season in the Red Devils’ 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle United on Saturday.

While Drogba, Gueye and Aurier joined Liverpool’s Sadio Mane in sending powerful messages to the north African nation.


Comment peut on rester indifférents devant tant de haine, l’esclavage, la traite humaine est la sous nos yeux chez nous en Afrique en Libye !!!! Partagez sur vos réseaux, manifestez jusqu’à ce que ce cauchemars cesse!! J’invite les autorités libyennes à stopper ces actes d’une barbarie qui laisse sans voix et censés être révolus!!! Honte à ceux qui traitent ainsi leur frères humains!!!!!!! Shame on those who see this and decide to stay silent, no words will be strong enough to describe how I feel about such slavery!!! Migrants are not your slaves, freedom for those who are leaving their countries for a better place to live and end up in these horrific people This is a crime against humanity and as human beings we can’t stay silent and not say or do anything
