Pogba out of Tottenham game after father passes on

Paul Pogba has been left out of Manchester United’s squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash at Tottenham Hotspur, after his father died Friday.

The Frenchman did not travel with the rest of the team on Saturday afternoon.

Fassou Antoine, 79, passed on after a long illness.

Manager Jose Mourinho, will also be without another midfielder, Marouane Fellaini, who missed the match at White Hart Lane as he serves the final game of his three-match ban.

Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe were joined in the travelling party by Demetri Mitchell, Matty Willock and Matt Olosunde.

Mourinho is likely to pick a young midfielder, with the Portuguese having prioritized the Europa League where they face Ajax in the final later this month.
