Solskjaer announces he has talked to Manchester United star after Deschamps comments
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he has held talks with Paul Pogba after France coach Didier Deschamps commented on his lack of playing time.
Pogba is one of the most talked about players in the Premier League, but not for his impressive performances or leadership on the pitch, not he is being talked about as a massive transfer flop and a player that United need to sell on.
Pogba has constantly been linked with moves away from Old Trafford and onto the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid, with the fact that he has been dropped from the starting squads on multiple occasions adding to the transfer speculation.
French boss Deschamps recently claimed the midfielder was ‘unhappy’ at Old Trafford as a result of starting two of the club’s last seven matches, and now Solskjaer has opened up and revealed that he has now held talks with the Frenchman.
Solskjaer was quoted on the SUN: “Paul’s had a difficult season last season. He’s had Covid now [earlier in the season].
“I think those three games he played for France helps both us and Paul, and it helped France. He gets a rhythm, he gets his fitness.
“I’ve spoken to Paul and he certainly felt towards the end of the Portugal game and definitely the end of Sweden game he felt stronger for it.
“He played well, they qualified. I think he’s only going to improve. Paul is, as I’ve said, a very important player and very important person for us.
“To have him in form and happy is going to be vital for the run that we can hopefully put together now.”
Pogba has had a bad start to the new season, but how many times have United fans said that? How many chances can he be given to not shine? Is it not time to let him leave?
