Fans react to news that Paul Pogba is suspended for Man United's season opener

Paul Pogba's Manchester United debut will be delayed by a week after the Football Association announced he would miss Sunday's game at Bournemouth through suspension.

United secured Pogba's return to Old Trafford to great fanfare earlier this week, signing him from Juventus in an £89million move.

But his second debut for the club will not come on the south coast after the Football Association listed him among four players to be banned for the opening weekend.

The FA used Twitter to say that the ban relates to two yellow cards issued in last season's Coppa Italia. The second card came in the final, which was his last game for Juventus.

His debut is now likely to be against Southampton, at Old Trafford, next Friday.

Reaction has been mixed.

This guy reckons the whole thing stinks.

And these United fans insist he wouldn’t have started anyway.
