Paul Pogba has been suspended for Manchester United’s Premier League opener at Bournemouth on Sunday.
Pogba completed his £90million switch from Juventus to Old Trafford earlier this week but will be unavailable for the first game of the campaign.
He picked up bookings against Inter Milan in March and against AC Milan in May in the Italian domestic cup competition resulting in the suspension.
And his suspension was confirmed by the English Football Association as he was listed on the FA’s website as one of the players ‘currently under suspension’ ahead of the first weekend of the new season.
“He was booked twice in last season’s Coppa Italia, which results in a one-game ban. This has been transferred to England,” the FA tweeted.
The earliest the 23-year-old could now make his second bow for United is their second Premier League game of the campaign at home against Southampton Friday next week.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
