Report: Solskjaer has ‘sympathy’ for Mourinho after working with Pogba

Ole Gunnar Solskaer reportedly has sympathy for Jose Mourinho having now sampled ‘the best and worst’ of Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman was in woeful form in the opening months of the season, but the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December saw Pogba spring to life, with many pointing fingers at Mourinho for failing to get the best out of the £89 million man.

Pogba inspired Manchester United on an impressive run of form which saw them close the gap to the top four, before him and the sides form fell off a cliff at the end of the campaign, with the Red Devils falling back to where they started, finishing sixth in the Premier League and missing out on Champions League football.

Now, with the season at an end and reports of interest from Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG, Pogba has decided that it might be time for a new challenge, as he tries to force an Old Trafford exit.

Having witnessed Pogba at both his impressive best and his exasperating worst, the Daily Mail claim that United management team of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan have ‘a degree of sympathy’ for former boss Mourinho who often showed his frustrations with the polarising Frenchman.

They also claim that a club source told them that they were ‘far from overjoyed’ at the prospect of Pogba returning to the club next season, as they ‘have a problem with Pogba almost every day’.
