Manchester United’s newly acquired Paul Pogba was suspended for the club’s opening Premier League game against Bournemouth.

As explained by the Football Association, this suspension is related to a ban placed at the player’s former club, Juventus. “He was booked twice in last season’s Coppa Italia, which results in a one-game ban,” said the FA. “This has been transferred to England.”

Pogba’s first game for Manchester United after his return could now be on Friday, 22 August, against Southampton.

Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas will also miss the game because of his hernia problem.
