Reports: How Solskjaer Convinced Pogba To Stay

With Paul Pogba having cut a frustrated figure under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the Frenchman to convince him to stay at Old Trafford has now reportedly been revealed.

EPL Boss: You Can't Stop Pogba!

The 25-year-old endured a tough time with the Red Devils under the Portuguese tactician, who was fired in December 2018, a day after United lost 3-1 to Liverpool in the Premier League.

Interim boss Solskjaer has seemingly given Pogba licence to express himself further up the pitch rather than reduce him to a deeper role in midfield where he would have more defensive duties.

The Norwegian's plan with Pogba has paid dividends so far, with the midfielder having contributed to 11 goals in his past nine matches.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer has done far more than just get the best out of the player on the pitch, having essentially persuaded the ex-Juventus star to stay at the club.

It has been claimed that, upon his arrival in the club's hot seat, Solskjaer made it clear to Pogba he would be made the focal point of the team if he chose to remain at the club.

The Norwegian has heaped praise on the France international whenever asked about him in press conferences, and has even suggested that he is a candidate for the captain's armband.
