Here is while Manchester United Midfielder, Paul Pogba has been wearing an arm sleeve.

French and Manchester United star Midfielder, Paul Pogba captained his team during their Thursday Europa League quarter-final second leg tie against Granada.

Paul Pogba provided the assist for Edinson Cavani opener against Granada on Thursday night, as Manchester United went on to win the game 2-0 at Old Trafford with a 4-0 aggregate.

Many Manchester United faithfuls will have noticed that the French international wore a separate arm sleeve when leading his side in the 2-0 win at Old Trafford, as he has done for the majority of the season.

There have been speculation around why the compression cover have been part of his kit.

The Manchester United number 6 has explained while speaking to MUTV's Mark Sullivan ahead of this weekend's match against Burnley.

Pogba said: "It Started with the pain, I had the pain (in the left elbow), it actually started with my right elbow, so I put it on my right, and I had the same problem with my left, so I started playing with this to get it warm instead of the strapping. It's tight on my elbow.

I've been playing with this and it is just natural now, just for security."

The 27-year-old says he will continue wearing it, saying: "Now it's (associated with) me, when people see that, they think of me. It just become me."
