Pogba outshines Ibrahimovic as United down Milan in Europa League

Paul Pogba came on to score the winner as Manchester United pipped AC Milan 1-0 at the San Siro in the second leg of their Europa League last 16 clash Thursday.

The returning Frenchman, recently sidelined with a thigh injury, proved to be the trump card for Ole Gunnar-Solskjaer whose side will now fancy their chances in the competition.

A game-changing substitution was the plan for Milan coach Stefano Pioli following the return of talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He never counted on the match-winner stepping off United’s bench.

Ibrahimovic did get on the fray, but he would not have joy over his former teammates as United had their goal and never looked back.

Elsewhere, Arsenal squeaked through to the quarterfinals of the competition on a 3-2 aggregate win despite suffering a 1-0 home loss to Olympiakos.

But the big shock of the night came in Croatia, where Dinamo Zagreb overturned a 2-0 deficit to beat Tottenham Hotspurs 3-0, leaving Jose Mourinho and his sputtering Spurs gobsmacked.

Ajax won 2-0 in Switzerland to complete a 5-0 aggregate win over Young Boys, while Steven Gerrard’s Rangers saw their run ended by Slavia Prague, who won 2-0 in Glasgow after the first leg ended 1-1.

Spanish outfits Villarreal and Granada also book slots for the last eight draw holding later today.
