Reports: How Man Utd Boss Has Reacted To Pogba's Penalty Miss

After missing a vital penalty in Manchester United's latest league match, midfielder Paul Pogba was believed to have upset manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has now reportedly taken action against him.

Following his failure to convert from the spot in United's 1-1 draw away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday, Solskjaer is understood to have banished Pogba from spot-kick duties.

According to The Sun, the Norwegian was furious with the 26-year-old Frenchman as his miss essentially stopped United from taking all three points at Molineux Stadium.

It has been claimed that Solskjaer has removed all penalty responsibility from him completely, which has reportedly stunned a few players in the squad, especially with Pogba's future still uncertain.

There is a fear that the manager's actions will only drive the 2018 Fifa World Cup winner further away from United, with the midfielder having already said the idea of a new challenge excites him.

Pogba did miss from the spot a few times last season, but the drama on Monday came as he took the kick instead of striker Marcus Rashford, who had buried his penalty effort against Chelsea just a week earlier.

The former Juventus man was criticised by former United players now working as pundits, including Gary Neville, and was also the victim of racial abuse on Twitter.

It remains to be seen whether or not Pogba will still be a Red Devil before the end of the European transfer window, with Real Madrid still said to be after his signature.
