Paul Pogba suspended for Manchester United's opener against Bournemouth

Paul Pogba is set to miss Manchester United's Premier League opener at Bournemouth on Sunday through suspension.
The 23-year-old became the most expensive player in the world when he agreed a lucrative return to United from Juventus in a record-breaking £89m transfer.

Pogba was given two yellow cards during Juventus’ Coppa Italia campaign last season and the subsequent suspension has been transferred to England.

Despite having not played a Premier League match in four years, the Football Association have confirmed that Pogba will be forced to wait until next Friday to make his United return.

"He was booked twice in last season's Coppa Italia, which results in a one-game ban. This has been transferred," a tweet from the FA said on Friday afternoon.

Jose Mourinho's side face Southampton at Old Trafford on Friday 19 August.

Speaking after news of Pogba's transfer was revealed this week, the Portuguese praised his latest signing: "I know the discussion, I understand that, sometimes in football, things happen and the club breaks the record, but this is only possible at clubs like Man United.
