Man Utd Boss Addresses Pogba Situation

After Paul Pogba was recently accused of refusing to play for Manchester United, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has commented on the situation surrounding the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.

Real Reason Pogba Hasn't Been Playing Revealed?

Earlier this week, it was reported that the 26-year-old has been delaying his return from injury to force a move away from the club.

It is well known that Zinedine Zidane is interested in signing him for Real Madrid, and that there is mutual interest from the player, who has previously admitted that playing for Los Blancos would be a dream.

Solskjaer, however, has rubbished claims that Pogba does not want to play, insisting the Frenchman is doing his best to get back to full fitness.

"Every player is allowed to be injured when he's injured and Paul is working hard to get back," he said, according to the Irish Examiner.

"No one can doubt his professionalism, his willingness or his desire to play football.

"He's one of the best midfielders in the world and it'll be like signing a new player before the transfer window opens.

"And, of course, we've missed him when he's been away. I think some of the players – Scotty (Scott McTominay) and Fred – have taken up that challenge and have done well, but, of course, it's a boost for us when he comes back."

Pressed further about Pogba's return date, the Norwegian admitted he was not sure.

"He's stepping up his recovery, and let's see how soon he'll be match-fit and available," Solskjaer continued.

"Of course, that's going to be a new signing for us.

"He's not really been able to play for us so when we get him back, it'll be like a new world-class signing, a new world-class midfielder, so, of course, we want him back as soon as possible."

Pogba has played just six times for United so far this season, assisting two goals in the process.
