Manchester United star Paul Pogba claimed that Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger “nibbled” him during the Euro 2020 clash between France and Germany.

During the game, Pogba reacted angrily after Rudiger seemed to have put his teeth on his back before reaching his arms around the Frenchman’s chest.

Pogba reported the matter to the referee towards the end of the first half in Munich, but no action was taken, and the Frenchman insisted that he didn’t want the German to be sent off.

“I’m not crying for cards, yellow, red cards because of such actions,” Pogba said.

“He nibbled, I think, a little bit on me. But we have known each other for a long time.

“I told the referee and he takes decisions and he took a decision. It’s over.

“It was a great match for us … and I didn’t want him to be suspended because of such a situation. It was towards the end of the match. We hugged each other and that’s it.”
