Solksjaer Reveals What Pogba Has To Do To Get Back Into The United Side

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been speaking at his first press conference as Manchester United interim manager this morning.

One of the first questions he was asked was about Paul Pogba and how he will manage the French playmaker.

The 25-year-old was reportedly at odds with previous coach Jose Mourinho and was an unused substitute against Liverpool last weekend, but Solskjaer says Pogba, like the rest of United squad, must learn to be team players first and foremost:

“My job is to help the players, make them grasp the opportunity, they all wanna be part of Manchester United, I’m here to help them, help the team, down to man management.”

“I had the best manager as a player and coach to deal with players and it’s about communication, I’ll sit down and speak to the ones not playing.”

“When you’re at Manchester United there are a set of demands and one is to be a team player and I don’t think anyone has been on the bench more than me! That’s all my comeback to players, you might come on, make an impact.”

It is expected that Pogba will return to the starting line up tomorrow afternoon when the Red Devils face Cardiff City. Luke Shaw could also come back into the fold after two games out.

It has been reported in the English media that the left-back was omitted from the matchday squads against both Valencia and Liverpool because of another falling out with Mourinho, after declaring himself injured for the 4-1 win over Fulham two weeks ago.
