Man United’s Paul Pogba could be in trouble after reports emerged that the player could face retrospective action for his reaction to his sending off in his side’s 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday.
This is according to the Sun, who state that Pogba clapped Marriner’s decision after the referee deemed the Frenchman’s tackle on Hector Bellerin was worthy of a red card.
As reported by the Mirror, the FA are to wait on the match report from Marriner before making up their minds as to whether they are to investigate Pogba’s actions proceeding the red card.
Should the FA decide to investigate Pogba’s reaction and find him guilty, it remains to be seen what punishment the player will suffer.
Since arriving in Manchester from Italian side Juventus in the summer of 2016, Pogba has impressed fans with his high level of performances.
The player’s ability on the ball and wide passing range, as well as other things, has seen some label the France international as one of the best player’s in the league, and rightly so.
Without Pogba in the side so far this season, United have struggled, as the Frenchman is Jose Mourinho’s side’s main creative force, and without him, they look to be short of ideas at times.
It’s going to be a big ask to beat rivals Man City without the 24-year-old next weekend, however if anyone thrives under pressure in big situations, it’s Jose Mourinho.

Should Pogba face action from the FA for his reaction to Marriner’s decision, it could hurt United even more than his red card already has.
