Pogba is expected to lead France’s attempts to win the World Cup for a second time in Russia.
The tournament will take place amid fears of racist behaviour from sections of fans.
Russia has been blighted by racism in recent years and Pogba is hoping the Finals go ahead without acts of discrimination.
But Pogba has urged fans to focus on how good the footballers are – instead of the colour of their skin.
He said: “When it comes to the World Cup, all those sports teams from all over the world going (to Russia), I think we won’t hear a lot of racism.
“You are a sportsman, you are a football player and the colour doesn’t do anything”

“I enjoy football and the people who do this, I just want them to understand it’s just a game. Against your team yes, but it’s about respect as well.
“At the end of the day, when you finish a game, you go back home and you’re a normal person, so just respect that.
“You are a sportsman, you are a football player and the colour doesn’t do anything. It is the skill that you do, not the colour.
“Personally, when I look at the footballers like Ronaldinho, (Lionel) Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, whoever, I just admire them for what they are doing on the pitch. That’s what our eyes should look for.”
Pogba insists his advice to any player subjected to racist taunts is to respond with skill and talent on the pitch.
He added: “Just by doing great on the pitch – the best answer is on the pitch, with racism and stuff like that.
“If you can play well, score a goal, just for yourself, you know?
“Just keep cool, just enjoy life because you are lucky and blessed to be able to [do] things that a lot of people can’t do. Think about the chance we have and enjoy life.
“I hope we can help a lot in football and outside football too. If a young guy, and I am still young, can help the world by showing an example, I will be very happy.”
