Paul Pogba honored to captain Manchester United in Granada win

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba revealed he was honored to captain the Red Devils during their 2-0 victory over Granada. 

Pogba captained United in the absence of suspended Harry Maguire but played the first half as he was substituted at the restart after picking up a yellow card. He provided an assist for Edinson Cavani's opener in the 6th minute before he was taken off at the interval. 

On his substitution

"There were some tackles, yellow cards," he said after the game. 

"It was a bit of everything. We got a goal in the first half, that made me happy. I had to come off, obviously. We had a 1-0 [lead], that was good obviously but I knew that if I come off, the player coming on would make a difference as well."

”The yellow [card] was unfortunate. For me, it wasn’t a yellow card and I’m sure [it’s the same] for a lot of people. I think it was a foul against me but I got a yellow card. We win the game and that’s the most important [thing].“

The Frenchman said he was very happy and proud to captain the Red Devils.

"Of course, it’s a pleasure and an honor to be the captain here at Manchester United, in this stadium, at home," said the midfielder. 

"It’s an honor for me and I always try to do my best for this team, for this club. I was very happy and proud to have this."
