Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United’s boss, opened up his partnership with midfielder Paul Pogba.
Despite the French international having a rough time for most of his Old Trafford career and proving a controversial figure among the fans of the club, behind the scenes, things seem to look a little healthier.
Solskjaer tried to offer an insight into his working relationship with Pogba, which he believes is healthy, as he praised the character and attitude of the 27-year-old.
“Being transparent and honest with him is my job. I’ve never had a problem with him,” the Guardian quotes Solskjaer.
“I’m talking to Paul openly and explicitly. I’m not going to tell anyone what my advice is, but I’ve always had a nice friendship with him. He comes from a great family, he’s a fair kid, and when we talk, he knows what I’m talking about.
With me, he’s upfront and frank too. And even though he’s not playing, what people don’t see with Paul is that he has contributed tons in the past. He has also acted as the translator between me and various players often, even when he’s not playing.
He always respects my choices and we have had a very good working relationship at all times.”
