Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sung the praises of midfielder Paul Pogba, after his sides hard fought 1-0 win away to Leicester City yesterday.
France international Pogba has been in inspired form since Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in the Old Trafford dugout just before Christmas, and the £89 million midfielder again showed his class at the King Power yesterday, providing a wonderfully weighted assist for Marcus Rashford to score the games’ only goal.
Speaking after the game, Manchester United’s Norwegian coach hailed Pogba’s desire to improve.
”I think he can look back on these games and say that he is on his way,’’ Solskjaer told his post-match press conference.
”Paul is a fantastic midfielder and he can always improve and he’s one of those lads who wants to improve and he wants to see this game and wants to see what he could have done better.
”He’s playing more or less every minute, so of course, now the recovery in-between games will be important for him.’’
Pogba and Rashford have probably been the two most improved players since the managerial change at United – netting a combined 12 times and providing seven assists – and Solskjaer is delighted with their budding partnership.
”As Paul and Marcus get to know each other’s games, they know each other’s strengths and with the quality they’ve got, you expect that quality and it was a beautiful, beautiful pass and a great finish.’’
