“He was second best in almost every moment he was involved — though he made a nuisance of himself for the winner.” Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford amid rumoured falling outs with manager Jose Mourinho. And the midfielder did not rule out a move back to Juventus. maxbet When asked after the game whether a return to the reigning Serie A champions, Pogba said: “Who knows? I’m with United now. “There is so much talk about this, but am happy to be playing for Manchester United.
