EPL: Solskjaer Hails 'New' Paul Pogba
Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has showered praises on Paul Pogba for his resurgent displays for the Red Devils; adding that it is a delight to see the French star play with smiles again.
The midfielder scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Huddersfield as United made it two wins from as many matches since sacking Jose Mourinho and bringing in Solskjaer last week.
Pogba was restored to the starting line-up under the Norwegian and has shone in both the 5-1 win at Cardiff and the Boxing Day success against Huddersfield.
Solskjaer – who previously worked with Pogba when he managed United’s reserves – was asked about the smile that had been seen on the Frenchman’s face and said: “That’s the Paul I know, the Paul I have known since he was in the reserves and in the youth team.
“He’s always been a happy boy, he’s always had a big smile on his face and when you score a goal, or if you score two, of course you’re happy. And when you play football for Manchester United you should be happy.
“Of course it’s a responsibility but it’s an honour and a privilege.
“Paul loves playing for this club. He’s a Man United boy through and through. He’s a kid that knows what it means to play for Man United.”
He added: “I’m spending time with the players of course, and trying to get as much time with each individual as possible.
“Paul is one that’s really enjoyed… Last time (against Cardiff) he creates two or three goals, this time he scores two himself. I think he’s enjoyed this today.”
After Nemanja Matic put United 1-0 up in the 28th minute, Pogba struck twice in the second half before Mathias Jorgensen’s late consolation for the visitors.
