Pogba positive for COVID-19, removed by France
“Paul Pogba was initially on the list but unfortunately for him, he underwent a test yesterday which turned out to be positive this morning,” Deschamps said.
The news will come as a blow to United, who return for preseason training next Wednesday. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is already set to miss the start of preseason training with the club as he undergoes a 14-day quarantine after returning from holiday in Dubai.
Earlier this week United captain Harry Maguire was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery following a trial on the Greek island of Syros after an altercation with police officers on Mykonos. Maguire will appeal the decision.
