France star Paul Pogba has broken his silence on getting bit by Germany defender Antonio Rudiger during their EURO 2020 opener.
The incident took place at the end of the first half as replays showed Rudiger nibbling at Pogba's back, although there was no VAR called for the clash.
Despite the outcry at the incident, Pogba has no bad feelings towards the incident or his friend, Rudiger.
"We're friends," Pogba said, as per Goal.com.
"This was nothing big. I think you saw the TV pictures, this is all over, this belongs to the past.
"I'm not crying for yellow or red cards for such actions. He nibbled, I think, a little bit on me.
"We've known each other for a long time.

"I felt it, I told the referee, he takes the decisions and he took the decision. He hasn't received any card and I think it's better like this. I don't want him to be suspended because of this."
