Paul Pogba has been ruled out of the game with Southampton due to the death of his father.


The midfielder has been provided compassionate leave from the game. Manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that the midfielder was also left out of the match against Tottenham during the weekend for the same reason. Pogba’s father passed away on Friday and he has not been back in the United set up. Even if he was present in the squad, Jose Mourinho would not have utilised him. The manager has made it a priority to win the Europa League.
