Paul Pogba Pleased To Play Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Published

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has being experiencing great playing time since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the caretaker coach.

Pogba found himself on the bench under the club’s former head coach, Jose Mourinho, who also stripped him of the assistant captaincy role.

Pogba in his statement, made it clear that he “enjoy playing football again” after overcoming his struggles under Mourinho.

His less playtime under Mourinho sparked possible move to Junventus, who left their door open for a reunion with the midfielder.

On the arrival of Ole Gunner Solskjaer, the french player has registered four goals and three assists.

Pogba told United’s official website of his return to prominence: “Obviously it’s good.

The month before that [November] I wasn’t playing a lot so just being back on the pitch, playing and enjoying with the guys is good.

“It’s always good for me and I enjoy playing football and being with the guys.”

Pogba’s efforts have seen him land United’s latest Player of the Month award, with that prize recognising the braces he bagged against Huddersfield and Bournemouth.

Asked to pick his favourite goal of his haul, he said: “I would say the header [against Bournemouth].

“It’s not my best attribute, I would say, but yes, the header. The timing was good and the cross [from Ander Herrera] was good, so it was a good goal.”

“We’re Manchester United so that [winning] should be a basic thing for us,” added Pogba.

“Obviously we know that the Premier League is hard and we have a lot of games [to play] but those five games give us more confidence.

“Mentally we’re strong and ready. For the rest of the season, we just want to do the same and carry on like that.”

United continue to occupy sixth spot in the Premier League table at present, but have closed to within six points of the top four in an ongoing battle for Champions League qualification.
