Juventus coach Antonio Conte has defended Paul Pogba.

Pogba was sent-off in only his second cap for France against Spain.

Conte said: “I saw the game and I thought his dismissal was wrong seeing as the first booking was non existent when you consider that he jumps normally for the ball.

“With experience he could have avoided the second. But I have to compliment him as he’s showing the progress he has made with us by playing for his country.”
