Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has revealed he dropped Paul Pogba for Wednesday night’s Champions League at Sevilla, because the player “created doubts”.
Pogba missed the 2-0 win over Huddersfield in the FA Cup last weekend because of illness and Mourinho suggested before tonight’s game that it was the Frenchman’s decision not to play that match.
“We are going to play with three midfield players and Paul could play in one of the roles but Paul created some doubts by not playing on Saturday by his own decision. He wasn’t feeling good and he created some doubts,” Mourinho said.
Pogba was expected to go straight back into United’s starting line-up, but will start among the substitutes at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Mourinho has gone with a midfield three of Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay.
