Paul Pogba suspended for Manchester United season opener by the FA

Paul Pogba will not be involved at Bournemouth on Sunday.

The Football Association has revealed Paul Pogba is suspended for
Manchester United’s opening Premier League game of the season against
Bournemouth on Sunday.

The midfielder joined United from Juventus for £89m in the early hours
of Tuesday morning and there had been speculation he could make his
debut against the Cherries despite taking a holiday in the United States
following France’s Euro 2016 final defeat to Portugal and only starting
pre-season training this week.

However, his name has appeared on a list of four players tweeted out by
the FA as suspended for this weekend, including his United team-mate
Chris Smalling.

Pogba’s one-match ban is a result of yellow cards he received while playing for Juventus.
