Revealed: Reason why Pogba missed Man Utd flight to England

08 Nov 2018, 15:05

Paul Pogba missed the flight back to Manchester and failed to travel with the Manchester United squad as he was delayed behind at the Allianz Stadium for drug testing.

The Frenchman arrived an hour after the rest of the squad in Manchester with manager Jose Mourinho also forced to take a different flight from his teammates. Pogba traveled with Manchester United executives in the same flight back home after being randomly selected for a drug test following the 2-1 win over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League.

In a post-match interview, Pogba lauded Juventus for the warm reception he received, “Who knows? I’m with United now. There is so much talk about this, but am happy to be playing for Manchester United. I didn’t celebrate when we went 2-1 up, it felt too strange. I saw so many people that I know well. We played against a great team and we really had to win.”
