Premier League: Paul Pogbareveals what he intended to doto Hector Bellerin

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has spoken for

the first time since his sent off in the Premier League

match against Arsenal at the Emirate last weekend.

The red card incident saw the Frenchman ruled out of

Sunday’s Manchester derby.

The incident generated controversy, as the France

international midfielder seemed to be caught out by the

unusual body position of the Arsenal defender, Hector

Bellerin.

The former Juventus man said the incident was an

accident.

Pogba said, “I didn’t really speak after the game – I didn’t

have time – but I think Hector, I know him as well, and I

would never give him a tackle like this.

“Unfortunately for me I thought he would put his feet and

he was in a position that was a disadvantage for me so I

have done it.

“It looks very bad, but the intention wasn’t like that. They

had the decision, the referee got the red card and that’s

football.”

Pogba played the full 90 minutes in Tuesday’s Champions

League match against CKSA Moscow, with Jose

Mourinho’s side, coming from behind to claim a 2-1 win.
