Pogba insists Manchester United players want Solskjaer to get permanent job

Paul Pogba has said that Manchester United players want to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appointed as the club’s permanent manager.

The Norwegian took over from Jose Mourinho on a temporary basis back in December, with the former Chelsea boss having steered the Red Devil’s on their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.

Solskjaer’s return to Manchester United coincided with a remarkable turnaround in form and results, with Pogba taking a starring role in midfield, taking his tally to a career best 11 goals and nine assists in the league.

Pogba previously worked with Solskjaer during his time in the United academy, and he resoundingly insisted that he and his teammates would love to see him given the job on a more permanent basis, saying that he has a good relationship with his players in what can be interpreted as a swipe at Mourinho.

“Of course we want him to stay,” Pogba said at a news conference while on international duty.

“The results have been great. I have a great relationship with him; he has a great relationship with the players.

“When a player is happy, he wants to keep being happy. Solskjaer deserves it. He knows the club, he knows everything about the club.

“He is a really happy coach that gave confidence back to the players. This gave us the freedom to play and enjoy football again because maybe we lost that with the results we had before.”
