Ole Gunnar Solskjær reveals the promise he made Paul Pogba after World Cup triumph

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær has revealed what he told Paul Pogba after his World Cup triumph.

Following his starring role in France’s side, Pogba failed to replicate such form upon his return to Old Trafford.

Although, since the arrival of Solskjær, the 25-year-old’s performances have been significantly improved.

Solskjær to Pogba: “Now it’s Man United, so let’s get you playing”

The Norwegian manager has revealed that he promised Pogba that he would help improve his performances at United.

Solskjær has thus far delivered upon this promise with the Frenchman being directly involved in 14 league goals since his first game in charge.

After his World Cup triumph, the coach on loan from Molde FK urged Pogba to now start delivering success for United.

Solskjær told NBC Sports:

“The first thing I said to Pogba was I congratulated him on the World Cup.

“I said, ‘Paul, fantastic, I am so happy for you. I coached a World Cup winner, so that is great.’

“But then I said: ‘Now it’s Man United, so let’s get you playing. Let the past be the past and let’s look forward.’

“We had to make sure we perform to the standards we expect and don’t dwell too much on the past.

“He has been good so far and the whole team has been very good, so we have responded really well.”
