Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provided an injury update on French midfielder Paul Pogba in a chat with MUTV after the Europa League win over Granada on Thursday night. Paul Pogba was one of three key players that had to leave the game due to injury.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provided an update on the injury to Paul Pogba in his pre-match press conference last week as he pointed out that the Frenchman still need a few weeks before he returns to action. Paul Pogba has been missing in action for the Red Devils since he sustained a thigh injury during the Premier League game between his team and Everton at Old Trafford last month. Paul Pogba has missed the last six games for Manchester United as a result of the aforementioned thigh injury. The Frenchman won’t be back until after the March international break as confirmed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the league outing between hosts Chelsea and Manchester United. Without Paul Pogba, Manchester United were not able to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as the two teams played out a goalless draw. The talking point of the dull game came in the first half when Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi was lucky not to concede a penalty when he handled the ball in the Blues box.
According to Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solskjær, French midfielder Paul Pogba is not trying to force his way out of Old Trafford but is instead focused on helping the club’s fortunes.
The midfielder has been ensuring a torrid run of form over the past months and has come under different forms of criticism both from fans, pundits, and ex-players. According to some fans, Pogba is going at length to fake injuries just so he misses games deliberately and not feature for the club.
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.
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.
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.
