Paul Pogba Wants Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to Get United Job Full Time

paul pogba

Paul Pogba has now joined the ranks of Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and other Manchester United players that believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be appointed full-time manager at the end of the season. As it stands right now, all signs seem to point to Solskjaer having the interim label removed from his job title, but if/when it happens it won’t be until season’s completion.

Although United headed into the break on a two game skid, he’s done a phenomenal job since he took over in mid December, and that’s reflected in his record. Conventional wisdom right now says he’s the only true candidate for the gig.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Says United Should Build Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford

zlatan ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn’t with Manchester United very long, but his short stint provided a lot of memorable moments. Perhaps the best season of the Jose Mourinho era at Old Trafford was the 2016-17 campaign, and that’s the term in which Ibrahimovic was the side’s leading scorer.

Mourinho is long gone now of course, and there are several players who are now finding themselves, and being all they can be under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who floundered or stagnated under the previous regime. Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are two such examples, and they comprise the pair of players that Ibra believes United should build around going forward.

The Norwegian took a club that was in shambles under Jose Mourinho and took them back into the top four (at least temporarily) and guided them to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, where they will face FC Barcelona.

After the match, Solskjaer gave a scathing assessment of his own team’s dreadful performance. He said it was the worst outing that he’s seen from them, and that it was a couple steps backward from all the progress the Red Devils have made.
