“He comes from a great family, he’s very understandable, he’s a very sensible boy and he knows what I’m talking about when we speak.”

The France international has been subjected to many criticisms for not showing his best for United, but Solskjaer backs him up, saying Pogba has been working hard in training to help the club succeed.

He’s upfront and honest with me too,

“Sometimes he’s even acted as the interpreter – even when he isn’t playing.

“He always respects my decisions and we’ve always had a very good working relationship.”
