France head coach Didier Deschamps said on Monday that Paul Pogba “can not be pleased” with the position he finds himself in at Manchester United.
This season, the French midfielder started just four of United’s seven Premier League games and just one of three in the Champions League. The future of Pogba at United remains unclear after last month he indicated that he “dreams” of playing for Real Madrid.
“Deschamps told reporters,” He’s in a situation with his club where he can’t be satisfied with either his playing time or his positioning.
He’s not at his peak, he’s had a string of injuries, and the COVID-19 has hit him pretty hard. He wants his rhythm to be identified.
“There’s no such question for me. When a player is in trouble at his club, he is happy to play for the French team. He’s going to tell me about his feelings and it’s going to go in a better direction because I know him very well.”
On Wednesday, Deschamps spoke ahead of France’s friendly match against Finland, before Les Bleus face Portugal and Sweden on Nov. 14 and 17 in the UEFA Nations League.
