And that will be a painful one for Paul Pogba considering the fact that the Frenchman will want to start against the team being handled by his former manager Jose Mourinho.

The France international has been training hard since he recuperated fully from injury and also played in Manchester United’s closed doors friendly games.

Pogba has not played any professional game for Manchester United since December 26 last year and this made the Red Devils to even sign Bruno during the January transfer window.

Bruno Fernandes has however integrated himself properly into Manchester United first team with superb performances before the League was put on hold.

Many Manchester United fans have been clamoring for the partnership of Bruno and Paul Pogba in the midfield, but that won’t happen this Friday according to Athletic.

Instead, Solskjaer could turn to a regular this season in Fred, as well as Scott McTominay or Nemanja Matic in the center of the park to feature alongside play-maker Fernandes.
