Solskjaer opens up on his relationship with Paul Pogba after transfer comments made by his agent

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up on his relationship with Paul Pogba.

The Norwegian insists he has a good rapport with the Frenchman despite his agent’s ridiculous comments about his future at Old Trafford last month.

He reveals that the French midfielder often plays a part as an interpreter to the coaches and players and also contributes to the success of the club both on and off field.

Speaking on his relationship with Paul Pogba, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Paul does a job to get himself fit and play football. My job is to be open and honest with him and give him my advice and I’ve never had a problem with him.

“I talk openly and directly with Paul. I’m not going to tell anyone what my advice to him is but I have always had a good relationship with him. He comes from a great family, he’s very understandable, he’s a very sensible boy and he knows what I’m talking about when we speak.

“He’s honest with me as well. He’s upfront and honest with me too. And what people don’t see with Paul is even when he isn’t playing he’s contributed loads in the background.

“Sometimes he’s even acted as the interpreter between me and different players – even when he isn’t playing. He always respects my decisions and we’ve always had a very good working relationship.”
