Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent a warning to Alexis Sanchez by stating that the Chilean must prove his worth to make the starting lineup. The 30-year-old has struggled to make a meaningful impact with the Red Devils since joining them from Arsenal 18 months ago and he is currently on the sidelines with a minor hamstring injury.

Speaking to The Mail, Solskjaer said that he wants to help Sanchez get back to the form replicated during his time at the Emirates. He added that he won’t spoon fee anyone and the players need to make the efforts to secure playing time, he told: “I will have to help. I’ve just answered a question here that you can’t spoon feed them. They’ve got to come in and grab their chances and Alexis is quality and he showed it in Copa America. Then he got his injury. I don’t think it’s too bad so I’m hoping he will be available for maybe Kristiansund or AC Milan so he will at least get some football before the season starts.”

Former Chelsea ace Tony Cascarino believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may consider the possible sale of Paul Pogba in the summer, should he be appointed as the permanent Manchester head coach. Ole took over the reins on an interim basis after Jose Mourinho’s sacking in December and the Norwegian has done a credible job thereafter to guide the team within the cusp of the top four.

During this period, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba have been among the players, who have stood up in the attacking department but Cascarino has posed questions regarding the latter’s consistency. In a report covered by The Times, Cascarino said that the Frenchman may have witnessed a change of fortunes under Ole but he has the tendency to switch off from games which was displayed during the FA Cup quarter-final against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.

Manchester United legend Paul Ince has said that he is unsure whether Paul Pogba would remain with the Red Devils beyond the ongoing campaign. The Frenchman had a difficult beginning to the current season under manager Jose Mourinho and this was a point where he was regularly sidelined from making the starting lineup.

However, with the Portuguese’s dismissal, his fortunes have changed under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and this has somewhat ceased the speculation regarding his future. In a report covered by TalkSPORT, Ince highlighted that Pogba’s position with United will always remain a topic of discussion, given the midfielder has not been consistent with the performances on the playing field.
