Pogba Solskjaer Manchester United

Solskjaer reveals he wants Pogba to ‘dictate games more.’

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he wants Paul Pogba ‘dictate games’ more for the club.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial saw United beat Watford 2-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday and move back into the top four, though United were outplayed for large parts by the impressive visitors.

France midfielder Pogba failed to impress during the win, and Solskjaer admits he may alter the 25-year-old’s position to increase his influence.

“Paul is important to us,” Solskjaer told his post-match press conference.

“We couldn’t keep the ball today and, as I’ve said it was probably 50-50 possession and, at home, we’re a bit disappointed with that.

“But Paul has been away and he’s played two games for France. Of course, he’s playing a bit deeper for them and that might be something we have to think about to get him more involved in the game, make him dictate games more for us.”

“That’s from game to game. As you can see, Paul can do both. He can attack and defend.”
