EPL: What Pogba, Rashford discussed before penalty miss in Man United 1-1 draw with Wolves

Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba had a discussion before the Frenchman took the spot kick in Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Wolves on Monday night.

The 21-year-old who scored a penalty against Chelsea last week, wanted to take the spot kick against Wolves but at same time, didn’t want to offend Pogba.

According to Mirror, Rashford had asked Pogba if he wanted to take the kick, and the former Juventus star said ‘yes’.

Then Rashford patted the Frenchman on the back, picked the ball and gave it to him.

United could have secured victory at Molyneux but Pogba missed the penalty.

The World Cup winner saw his spot kick saved by Wolves stopper Rui Patricio as United played out a 1-1 draw at Molyneux.

It was the second penalty awarded to the Red Devils this season.

Pogba had gone down under a foul from Connor Coady in the box, prompting referee Jonathan Moss to point to the spot.

Despite the Frenchman’s powerful effort though, Patricio was equal to it, forcing a share of the spoils between the two sides.
