Pogba insists Manchester United players ‘trust’ Solskjaer after ‘beautiful’ Chelsea win

Paul Pogba has given his backing to Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, saying that the current players trust the manager.

France international Pogba put in yet another man of the match performance in Manchester United’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Chelsea this evening, chalking up another goal and assist in what was an encapsulating game at Stamford Bridge.

Not only was it a top drawer, dynamic performance from the Red Devils, but it was all the more impressive with it coming on the back of their lacklustre display against PSG in midweek.

Speaking after the game, United midfielder Pogba praised the team’s performance and said that he and his teammates trust the current man in charge, a comment which came across as a dig at Solskjaer’s predecessor, Jose Mourinho.

“It is a beautiful win. Today was a great performance from the team, all of them. It wasn’t easy. We did it. We are really pleased with that win,” Pogba told BBC.

“The team helped me get to my best. I give everything for them. They help me score goals and get assists. We are enjoying playing together.

“We are Man Utd. We play to win trophies. He [Solskjaer] took this job because he can do it. He trusts us and we trust him.”

Manchester United will play Wolves in the quarter finals.
