Pogba wants ‘happy coach’ Solskjaer to stay at Man Utd

Pogba wants ‘happy coach’ Solskjaer to stay at Man Utd

That success in France was particularly remarkable because the squad was missing 10 first-team players through injury, and influential midfielder Paul Pogba was also suspended for the tie.

Solskjaer led United on a run of 14 wins from 17 games in all competitions after taking over from Jose Mourinho in December.

But Matic has now warned the three clubs that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men will fight till the end of the season for the top-four position on the Premier League table.

And Pogba, who has been in spectacular form under Solskjaer after clashing with former boss Mourinho, is keen for the caretaker manager to be rewarded with a permanent contract.

"He knows the club, he knows everything about the club". "The results have been great". I have a great relationship with him, so yeah, he totally deserves it.

Lastly, the 45-year-old asked his players to look back and analyse their own individual performances during the global break, and learn from their mistakes.

"I want to keep showing my love for football. A lot of talking outside that we weren't used to", Pogba said, reflecting on the final part of Mourinho's tenure.

He declined to elaborate, saying only, "Maybe we lost confidence, maybe things went wrong". I like to talk about the future because that's what matters. Everybody knows that. If you see two months ago we were 11 points behind Chelsea and now we are in a much better position. His eye for a stunning goal is certainly one of the many positives in his game, but his all-round midfield work should see him earn a move away from Molineux in the next few seasons, and United must target him in the summer, if they want to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City for Premier League silverware next season.
