During the clash, video footage showed an incident where Rudiger appeared to try and bite Pogba in the back during a physical altercation.

“With Tony, we are friends,” said Pogba post-game.

“This was nothing big. I think you saw the TV pictures, this is all over, this belongs to the past, I’m not crying for yellow or red cards for such actions.

“He nibbled, I think, a little bit on me, but we’ve known each other for a long time.

“He hasn’t received any card, I think it’s better like this. I don’t want him to be suspended because of such a situation. At the end of the match we hugged each other and that’s it,” he was quoted by Tribalfootball.com.
