Man Utd midfielder Pogba defends Kimpembe: He will survive the handball

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has defended Presnel Kimpembe after his blunder for PSG in their Champions League shock a fortnight ago.

It was Kimpembe's handball which led to Marcus Rashford's matchwinning penalty.

"He is a man who is strong mentally. What happened in the Champions League is football, it happens," said Pogba.

"He had a handball, he did not do it on purpose. Do not forget that in the first leg, he delivered for PSG. We often tend to talk about bad things and forget the good ones, but he did good things.

"He is very good. He forgot, it happened. He's a footballer, he's a professional, you have to forget about those things."
