    BENCH WARMER

    Paul Pogba has insisted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's decision to bench him against Paris Saint-Germain was all part of the plan.

    The £89million Frenchman was introduced midway through the second period with the scores deadlocked at 1-1.

    Pogba then played his part in the winner by assisting Marcus Rashford late on in the game.

    But when quizzed on why he started on the bench, Pogba told RMC: “We knew what awaited us [in Paris],” said the former Juventus star.

    “All the players were ready for this match — the result came as it should have come. They had chances, we also had some and we materialised. The result is positive.

    “It [his substitution against PSG] was prepared. We had prepared well for the match.

    “We know that they are very strong offensively, and we had to block that. Afterwards, we started especially well and we had chances. [We] managed to score.”

    GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS

    SunSport can reveal that Mason Greenwood has infuriated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after twice turning up late for training.

    The Manchester United manager had already warned him about his conduct following his expulsion from the England squad last month.

    But the teenage star has now been axed from the last two United squads for the 4-1 win at Newcastle and midweek triumph over PSG.

    Solskjaer has also grown sick of the striker’s general attitude so far this season.

    His performance level has dropped significantly too not least in the 6-1 drubbing by Tottenham in United’s last home game at Old Trafford.

    Solskjaer claimed ahead of the PSG game that it was not a disciplinary issue and that he was out the squad because he had a ‘niggle’.

    The manager, however, refused to say what that ‘niggle’ was or when he got it.

    Greenwood, 19, was also pictured swerving between posts during full training before the team flew out to Paris.

    He now has some work to do to get back into Solskjaer’s good books.

    Meanwhile, Kingsley Coman claims Paul Pogba faces unfair pressure at Manchester United to get “all their goals and assists”.

    Bayern Munich's Champions League final hero Coman believes his France team-mate shines at international level where he “feels so good” and is “free in his mind”.

    Coman, whose goal sunk PSG to clinch Bayern's Euro final joy in August, told the Mail: “Football is a lot in the head and the way you feel.

    “When we are together in the national team, I know he feels so good… he plays free in his mind. He can use all of his qualities.

    “Maybe the pressure is different. In his first year in Manchester, I think he was the best player. He had the most assists, I think, but people were still not happy.

    “They bought him and he was expensive but he is not supposed to be the one who scores all the goals and provides all the assists. He is there to give balance.”

    And finally, Arsenal's legendary former manager Arsene Wenger was offered the job at Manchester United.

    Earlier this month, the Gunners icon claimed he had a chance to take the Old Trafford gig – and now he's revealed even more about the approach.

    When asked if either Manchester club approached him, he revealed: “City never, United yes – I cannot tell you exactly when.”

    Grilled as to whether he was interested, Wenger added: “No, because I was at Arsenal.

    “You know, I had a real love story with Arsenal. My life is red and white.

    “I felt when I came to the club that there was this special charm inside it.

    “It was a good mixture between respect for tradition, respect for people, and not being scared to sometimes face unpopular judgements.”

    STERLING EFFORT

    Raheem Sterling has demanded “real leadership” and “proper action” after a shock study outlined the scale of online racist abuse at black players.

    The Manchester City forward was one of three black aces singled out for abuse for publicly supporting the Black Lives Matter campaign during Project Restart.

    In a series of stunning findings in the report, commission by the PFA and Kick It Out: 43 per cent of players involved experienced targeted and explicitly racist abuse.

    And half of the abuse was launched at Sterling, Wilfried Zaha and Wycombe’s Adebayo Akinfenwa alone.

    Sterling said: “I don’t know how many times I need to say this — but football and the social-media platforms need to step up, show real leadership and take proper action in tackling online abuse.

    “The technology is there to make a difference but I’m increasingly questioning if there is the will.”

    Sterling was speaking in response to the pilot study, conducted on behalf of the PFA and KIO by datascience company Signify Group, duringthe Project Restart games in June and July.

    The company looked at the messages sent to 44 high-profile black players, also including United star Marcus Rashford.

    TESTING TIMES

    Frank Lampard admitted Manchester United represent a ‘huge test’ for his side after hailing their ‘really good result’ away to PSG.

    He told BT Sport: “They (Manchester United) might be building on their performance tonight as well!

    “They had a really good result.

    “We have to, it’s a long season and we’re in the real early stages of it.

    “As I said before the game, we lost this game last year against Valencia so it’s a much better start for us and it gives us confidence ahead of what’s going to be a difficult group, no matter what way you look at it.

    “But, yeah, league games now ahead of us… Manchester United are a huge test off the back of a very good result for them but we have to go there with belief.”

    PRESSURE BA

    SUPER LEAGUE

    SunSport has revealed how a European Premier League might look fronted by Manchester United alongside the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.

    POINT TAKEN

    Manchester United duo Axel Tuanzebe and Fred starred in helping their team defeat PSG – but French newspaper L'Equipe wasn't too impressed.

    Tuanzebe was playing his first game for ten months and marshalled superstars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar brilliantly in a coming-of-age performance.

    Yet L'Equipe, who are notoriously stingy with their match ratings, only awarded him a five out of ten.

    Fred, alongside Scott McTominay, easily won the midfield battle against fomer United star Ander Herrera and ex-Everton man Idrissa Gueye.

    That was demonstrated when PSG boss Thomas Tuchel hooked off Gueye at half-time.

    Yet L'Equipe only awarded the Brazilian a FOUR out of ten.

    BOX TO BOX-ER

    Anthony Joshua had what it takes to become a Premier League footballer, according to his friend who revealed he “has a knack for everything”.

    The world heavyweight boxing champ, 31, was a handy Sunday league footballer as a 16-year-old and David Ghansa – his training camp manager and inner-circle pal of 15 years – reckons he could've made the Prem.

    He told Sky Sports: “He could barge people off the ball and win headers.

    “At the time, he was so tall compared to everyone else and was finding his 'man strength'.

    “Charlton, QPR and Watford would always scout our team because they knew our coach.

    “I felt like the next set of eyes would be on AJ because of his physical attributes.

    “You could throw AJ up front and he would boot it into the back of the net or sit him at the back and let him defend.

    “Could he have made it? If he applied himself fully. He has a knack for anything, it can be annoying.”

    MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

    BT Sport's new Match Day Experience is taking football fans behind the scenes at Premier League clubs – and even Rio Ferdinand is impressed.

    Former Manchester United and England captain Ferdinand said: “The dressing room was the place where no-one was able to go so to see inside is amazing.

    “Even now, I'm intrigued to look at what the changing rooms are like right now.

    “I've been in there at Leeds, but I haven’t been in there for 15-18 years, wherever is. So it's intriguing for me to get that opportunity to go in and have a look.

    “I wanted to have it and I think fans will be the same because and even looking at things like the difference in size of the home and away changing rooms.

    “There is a massive difference in like luxuriousness of a home changing compared to it away changing rooms.

    “Then when you see Old Trafford, they've expanded the home dressing room so much and you can see the gadgets that are in there now. For a fan to be able to see in there I think is a great added value.”

    LEAGUES BEHIND

    The former Real Madrid and Barcelona ace said: “What I read about this Super League idea will destroy football as we know it.

    USING OUR ED

    Ed Woodward has finally broken cover over his part in the Project Big Picture plans – insisting they have done English football a favour.

    He said: “You may have read about the discussions taking place within English football about plans to address the near-term financial predicament created by the pandemic for clubs in the lower leagues.

    “We have been playing an active role in those discussions because we strongly believe in supporting the English football pyramid…

    “Both in the short term, to address the issues created by Covid-19, and in the long term to improve financial sustainability at all levels of the game.

    “There will always be intense debate around any changes to the structure of football, just as there was before the formation of the Premier League 28 years ago.

    “Now, at this critical juncture for the game, we must ensure the huge success of the Premier League is reinforced while ensuring the wider football pyramid continues to thrive in a rapidly changing media environment.

    “Achieving this will require strategic vision and leadership.

    “We are pleased that the Premier League has committed to work together on a plan for the future structures and financing of English football.

    “Now it must deliver on that promise, and we are committed to playing a leading role in pushing that process towards a successful outcome.

    BORROWED TIME

    Mason Greenwood was reportedly hauled in front of Manchester United chiefs and given a dressing down for rocking up late to training.

    The 19-year-old forward is said to have frustrated the Red Devils with his 'general tardiness', according to The Mail.

    Greenwood missed United's 2-1 Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night, with strong rumours his exclusion was related to off-field matters.

    However, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer firmly denied it was anything other than a fitness issue for the England star – who also didn't make the squad for Saturday's 4-1 win over Newcastle .

    The Norwegian gave a flat 'no' when it was put to him that Greenwood's absence could be related to a disciplinary issue.

    GOALDEN OLDIES

    Chelsea stunned the footballing world by announcing Petr Cech in their 25-man Premier League squad for 2020-21… but he's actually YOUNGER than Willy Caballero.

    Cech played 494 times for Chelsea between 2004 and 2015 – winning four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, the Champions League and Europa League.

    Since leaving Stamford Bridge, Cech has turned out for Arsenal – and even enjoyed a stint as an ice hockey player for Guildford Phoenix.

    But now he has a genuine chance of playing football again.

    At the age of 38, the announcement shocked many fans.

    Yet, incredibly, the 124-cap Czech Republic legend is actually YOUNGER than new Chelsea team-mate Caballero.

    ED DEVIL

    United fans fans are convinced Edinson Cavani dished the dirt on former side Paris Saint-Germain to Axel Tuanzebe prior to Tuesday's clash.

    The Red Devils beat Les Parisiens 2-1 at Parc des Princes as they kicked off their Champions League campaign with a hard-fought victory.

    And Tuanzebe was a standout performer for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side as he starred in his first game of the season.

    The DR Congo-born England youth international, 22, won all his aerial battles and made a game-high seven clearances.

    A clip of Cavani speaking to Tuanzebe in training has went viral, with supporters joking he leaked information about his former employers.

    The duo were presumably speaking in French with Cavani spending seven years in Paris, while the language is one of three Tuanzebe can speak.

    Commenting on the video, one fan tweeted: “Already loving Cavani's positive influence in helping young players.”

    Another messaged: “Experience is always important in games like this, he couldn't play but did well to let others know.”

    TO MUCH FANFARE

    Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has called of fans to return to football stadiums.

    Woodward said: “While the situation in Greater Manchester and the UK as a whole continues to evolve, our plans for this are well advanced and we are confident of ours and the whole league’s ability to welcome them back in a safe, bio-secure environment.

    “Crowds have been permitted to return to varying degrees in over 20 European countries, albeit with significant capacity restrictions to allow for social distancing, and we urge the UK government to follow these positive examples as soon as it is safe to do so.

    “While we recognise that public health must always be the priority, what is needed is consistency of approach. If people are allowed to sit in a plane for hours, or in the cinema, or even watch football in a cinema why not outside in a stadium environment which is professionally managed and controlled?

    “If indoor concerts are allowed, why should outdoor, socially-distanced football fans be treated differently? Fans are the bedrock of this game and some of the inconsistencies out there are frustrating for them and for the clubs.”

    TOP MARCS

    Marcus Rashford said there is plenty for the club to build on after his stunning winner in the 2-1 scalp over Paris Saint-Germain.

    He said: “It’s a nice feeling. We’re in a stronger position now, but it’s the first game, and we have to take the concentration and intensity into the next game and the Premier League.

    “It’s a good performance, and we have a lot to build on. I always believe in the team and the system the manager chooses. Today we did that.

    “When we defend like that, man to man, we can do great things. The intensity was key for us. We’re very happy today.”

    SEEING RED

    Gary Nevilleslammed the timing of a European Premier League.

    He told Sky Sports News: “The big issue that I have with it, is that at this moment in time, in the middle of a pandemic and when football is on its knees at so many different levels, the idea that a $6bn package is being put together to set up a new league when lower clubs are scrambling around to pay wages and stay in existence.

    “It's another wound for football. It doesn't feel like the right time to be talking about this.

    “The leak probably doesn't suit Manchester United or Liverpool at this moment in time as they're seen as the big, bad bullies.

    “I'm for progression of football, with new competitions and new formats, but we have got to look after the fabric of the game and what it means to the communities in this country.”

    OUT OF TUCH

    PSGboss Thomas Tuchel claimed the defeat to Manchester United was 'one of our worst performances'.

    The French giants suffered a 2-1 defeat in the Champions League after Marcus Rashford scored a dramatic late winner.

    United pulled off an incredible comeback to beat PSG in the quarter-finals of the competition in March 2019.

    But PSG boss Tuchel has claimed that Tuesday night's performance was worse 'by far'.

    The German boss, 47, told beIN SPORTS: “In the first half, we were simply not on the pitch. It was not our level.

    “I don't know why, but I can just say that it was not our level, in moving the ball, in possession, in counter-attacking, in challenges, in intensity.

    “By far, one of our worst games, one of our worst first halves.”

    “It was a good mixture between respect for tradition, respect for people, and not being scared to sometimes face unpopular judgements.”

    It's not known exactly when Wenger was offered the United job – but it's widely believed to have been when Fergie nearly retired in 2002.

    YOU CAN JUST TELL

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed new signing Alex Telles following the full-back's Manchester United debut.

    The Brazilian – who joined from Porto – started at wing-back and proved a threat throughout on the left as United beat PSG 2-1 away.

    Solskjaer said: “You can see Alex on his debut, what he’s going to give us. His delivery was great.

    “I think we’ve shown today that we have a squad that can play different ways and in different systems.

    “Alex played very well on his debut, we know his delivery is fantastic.

    “We’ve got players back home in Harry Maguire, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Mason Greenwood and Eric Bailly so I’m looking forward to the next few weeks and months.”
