Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists that he doesnthave any difficulty with Paul Pogba being envisioned on a beach with Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane at the UAE.
Was seen chatting to Zidane in Dubai this week – fuelling speculation regarding his future at Old Trafford.
Asked about the picture, Solskjaer explained:Here we go with this image! Ive not heard Paul Pogba state he does not need to be here. Paul wants to remain and play well.
But, 1 journalist had been swift to point out Pogba saidit might be the time for a fresh challenge at the summer while his representative, Mino Raiola, affirmed that he wished to leave United.
Zidane was keen to attract Pogba into the Bernabeu from the summer – and is now still set on getting the France international – but Solskjaer states the midfielder plays a key role in his United eyesight.
Paul is a part of our strategy moving forward, additional Solskjaer.
He has been playing through the pain barrier. He has been right left and centre, but he couldve easily played when he came back against Arsenal and Rochdale.
He wanted to play, he wanted to try to get back and it had been too painful. Hes had a scan, hes on the back and hes been off, functioning but he is away from here.
Then theres a picture and being at Manchester United you can get speculation and pictures – but I dont have any issue with that whatsoever.
David de Gea, the United goalkeeper, was injured on Tuesday in the European Qualifier from Sweden of Spain.
He will miss Uniteds game live on Sky Sports Premier League, however Solskjaer provided an optimistic update on the fitness of the No 1.
I really dont expect him to play, but it was not too bad as feared, said Solskjaer.
After I saw the harm that I thought,That is him out until the upcoming global break because we have had any long-term muscle accidents. But it is not quite as bad as feared.
