Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opens up on Paul Pogba situation!

The former Cardiff boss vows to get the best out of Pogba.

After Jose Mourinho’s sacking, all eyes are on Paul Pogba. The midfielder has been in a dreadful form this season. In the summer he won the World Cup but since then he has been a shadow of himself. With talks of him leaving the club, new interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals how will he deal with Paul Pogba.




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has moved quickly to deal with one of the biggest problems of the Jose Mourinho era at Manchester United — the club’s record signing Paul Pogba. Solskjaer, who coached Pogba as part of his duties as reserve team manager at Old Trafford in 2010, has moved quickly to remind players of their responsibilities in the day and age of social media. Within minutes of Mourinho’s sacking on Tuesday, Pogba posted a social media photograph that appeared to be mocking the axed manager. A move that earned the player widespread criticism.  Solskjaer, who said before his appointment that he thought United should structure their entire playing system around Pogba has nothing but praises for the Frenchman.

He said, “He’s a World Cup winner. Paul is a terrific lad and when I had him as a kid, he was always there. The happy-go-lucky lad. He hasn’t changed personality-wise. He’s a better player, of course, and he’s one that I want to get the best out of. You have so many quality players that I want to get the best out of. He’s no different to anyone else in that respect.” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer further said the balance of power in modern football has not shifted too far in the players’ direction.

He said, “I’m not sure about you saying the power has gone to the dressing room. Football has evolved. Of course, and the gaffer (Sir Alex Ferguson) was in charge of more or less the whole club. Football is developing. The structure of the club has developed. The power is with the manager. He picks the team, the tactics, the strategy.”

Author’s take:

Ole knows Pogba since his young days so he will definitely know how to get the better out of the Frenchman. Ole’s main task should be keeping the United dressing room happy and integrated which so far has been negative and divided.
