Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba has taken a slight dig at the coach, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, following his spell on the bench this season.

The 27 year old has failed to start more than five games for United in the ongoing campaign, with Solskjaer preferring Scott McTominay and Fred instead.

French coach, Didier Deschamps recently lamented the playmaker’s situation, and the player himself has now spoken up as well, describing it as the worst spell he’s faced in his career.

But the Frenchman also seemed to take a veiled dig at Solskjaer, as he described playing for France as a breath of fresh air.

He told RTL after the Les Bleus recent win against Portugal, “I had never known such a difficult period in my career. The France team is a breath of fresh air.

“This group is exceptional, it’s magic. We are a family, we are all very close. We enjoyed the victory against Portugal. The team showed a lot of maturity.”
