Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Paul Pogba is a ‘Manchester United boy through and through’ following his second consecutive man-of-the-match performance.
Pogba has come in for huge swathes of criticism this season after some fairly underwhelming performances under Jose Mourinho, with his performances seeing him dropped for the final few games of the Portuguese’s reign.
However, the World Cup winner was swiftly restored to the first team by caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has responded by putting in two fine performances, providing two assists against Cardiff, before scoring two goals against Huddersfield on Boxing Day.
While there has been speculation that Pogba could leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, Solkskjaer has said that the £89 million man ‘loves’ playing for Manchester United.
“That’s the Paul I know and have known since he was in the reserves and youth team here,” the Norwegian told the media after yesterday’s 3-1 win.
“He’s always been a happy boy with a big smile on his face and when you score two goals you’re happy and should be.
“It’s a privilege and a responsibility playing for Manchester United and Paul loves playing for this club.
“He’s Manchester United boy through and through and knows what it means to play for Manchester United.
“Last time he created two or three goals and this time he scored two himself. I think he’ll enjoy this tonight.”
