Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has hailed the impact Paul Pogba has had in the last few games he’s played, after coming on from the bench.

The Frenchman came on in the second half against Chelsea on Saturday, and immediately began bossing the midfield, leading to more pressure on the opposition.

The 27 year old was also used in a similar way in mid-week, as we beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 away from home, and Solskjaer believes the midfielder is gradually getting back to his best.

He explained after the match on Saturday, “You see, when you have got good players, it is a nice challenge and a nice decision to make when you have got players on the bench that can come on to impact the game.

“I think Paul [Pogba], in all three games this week, has come on and made a very positive impact.

“Of course he has been out for a while with the coronavirus this summer. He is getting better and better, and more and more in shape.

“Maybe I was unfair on him by starting him that early in the first few games. He is coming along and he has done great when he has come on.”

Pogba came on and grabbed an assist in the 2-1 win at PSG, and was equally great on Saturday, so perhaps, this is the best way to use him for now?
