Gaetan Bong said Paul Pogba was “clever” when he won a penalty against Albion.

The French star went down easily as he tangled with left-back Bong in the first half at Old Trafford.

Referee Paul Tierney pointed to the spot and Pogba scored to send his side towards a 2-1 win.

Bong said of Pogba: “He was clever. We were fighting and he just put his foot between me and him and he went straight down.

“I think it was clever from him.

“He is a quality player and he is on form at the moment.

“Well played from him but I was a little bit upset. I spoke to the referee and I said he went easy on the floor.

“But he made the decision and I have to accept it.”
