France boss Didier Deschamps has claimed midfielder Paul Pogba is not happy with his situation at Manchester United.

The 27-year-old has seen playing time limited in recent weeks, and World cup winning coach Deschamps insists that the midfielder needs to rediscover his position going forward.

“He is in a situation with his club where he cannot be happy, neither with his playing time, nor with his positioning,” France manager Didier Deschamps said about Paul Pogba.

“He is not in his best period, he has had a series of injuries and the Covid-19 which has hit him quite hard. He needs to find his rhythm.

“The match he had to make last month was good and consistent despite a lack of pace. We cannot however say that he is fulfilled in what he does at his club.

“With me, there is no such concern, but I try to manage it too. When a player is in discomfort in his club, obviously, he is happy to play for the France team.

“He will tell me about his feelings and as I know him very well, it will go in a positive direction. Even if it is also up to him to make all his efforts,” the Frenchman also added.

Pogba has started the last two games for the Red devils on the bench, and is said to be unhappy with the new situation.
