Ahmed Musa makes promise after receiving his Kano Pillars’ jersey number

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, believes the club’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, made the right decision replacing him at half-time in Man United’s Europa League quarter-final second-leg tie against Granada on Thursday.

According to Pogba, Granada players were trying to get him sent off.

The Red Devils defeated the La Liga club 2-0 at Old Trafford, with Pogba playing just 45 minutes, setting up Edinson Cavani’s opener early on.

Man United eventually qualified for the Europa League semi-final on a 4-0 aggregate win.

“I know if I come off, the other player who comes on will make the difference as well,” Pogba told BT Sport.

“This yellow card was unfortunate, for me, it wasn’t a yellow card, but you have to accept it.

“But we won the game, and that is most important.”

Pogba added: “For sure [Granada players would use that early booking to try and get me sent off]. I know the foul just after it, I could see all the players trying to get me out.

“And that was when the manager saw it as well that it is better I came out before I got the red card and put my team in difficulty.”

Man United will now face AS Roma in the Europa League semi-final clash later this month.
