Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba needs to once again give off the sort of leadership on the field that made him a World Cup champion with France, said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“He is a champion of the World Cup and we like his leadership on the pitch too.” Solskjaer told reporters (via). “He also displayed quality. He’s one of the world’s strongest midfielders and ideally, we’ll get that started as soon as possible. We will slowly bring him back to his maximum over the next few months.”
As Pogba returns to Premier League action, Solskjaer talks about his recovery and new spirit for football:
“Paul has had his difficult season with loads of injuries this year, of course, but I can see his mentality and concentration now that he’s fit and trained and available. He’s ready to play again and to prove himself.”
