Man United legend Park tells Mourinho how to use Pogba - FCNaija

Manchester United manager Joe Mourinho has dropped Paul Pogba from his starting line-up for Wednesday night's last-16 UEFA Champions League tie at Sevilla.

The £89m midfielder who was dropped for a game after the Premier League defeat at Tottenham in January missed Saturday's FA Cup tie at Huddersfield because of illness but was expected to return in Seville.

He was substituted on his last appearance, a defeat at Newcastle on 11 February. Pogba trained this week as normal with his team-mates and United boss Jose Mourinho had suggested he was back to full fitness.

It's a strong line-up from the boss, which consists of three changes from Saturday's FA Cup win at Huddersfield as David De Gea, Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera return to the starting line-up in place of Sergio Romero, Luke Shaw and Michael Carrick.

Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are also back from illness and injury among the substitutes.
