Paul Pogba apologises after conceding penalty against Arsenal

As reported by The Independent, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted to having made a stupid mistake when he conceded a penalty against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Red Devils were far from inspiring on the day but had managed to prevent the visitors from scoring until the Frenchman felled Hector Bellerin inside the box. Thus, allowing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to step up and slot the ball into the back of the net.

Pogba has started the new season on a poor note. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has struggled for fitness this term but seemed to have found his footing in the midweek clash against RB Leipzig.

However, he was extremely poor against Arsenal and may once again find himself on the bench in the upcoming matches.

The Red Devils will look to bounce back to winning ways when they face Istanbul Basaksehir in the UEFA Champions League in a few days.
