Pogba caused a bit of stir recently after he claimed playing for France was breath of fresh air after struggling in the early parts of the season.

While many pundits and former players urged the club to sell Pogba, Solskjaer is convinced Pogba will improve after a good international break.

"Paul's had a difficult season last season," Solskjaer was quoted as saying by Manchester Evening News.

"He's had COVID now. Those three games he played for France helped us and Paul and helped France. He gets his rhythm, he gets his fitness.

"I spoke to Paul and he certainly felt towards the end of the Portugal match and definitely towards the end of the Sweden game he felt stronger for it, he played well, they qualified, of course.

"I think he's only going to improve. Paul is, as I've said, a very important player and a very important person for us and to have him in form and happy is going to be vital for the run that we can hopefully put together now.
