Manchester - Manchester United's new signing Paul Pogba is suspended for his side's Premier League opener at Bournemouth on Sunday, England's Football Association announced on Friday.

The 23-year-old France midfielder was booked twice while playing for Juventus in last season's Coppa Italia, incurring a one-game ban that has been transferred to England.

Having only just returned from his holidays after Euro 2016, Pogba was doubtful to feature against Bournemouth anyway.

Pogba returned to United earlier this week in a reported £89m deal that made him the world's most expensive player. He left United for Juventus in 2012.
