Man Utd ace Paul Pogba tipped to leave Old Trafford due to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer



Posted Sunday, November 15, 2020 by Express.co.uk

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been tipped to look for a way out of Old Trafford.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba should leave the club in order to recapture his best form, and the playmaker can’t be blamed for his poor form due to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tactics. That’s the verdict of Carlton Palmer.

Pogba has struggled for form recently.

The French midfielder, who is United’s record signing at £89million, has never been able to showcase his world-class ability at Old Trafford.

He struggled under Jose Mourinho, and has been played in a variety of positions by Solskjaer.

He has been used in a range of positions throughout the middle of midfield, but is now struggling to hold down a place in the side.

Instead, Solskjaer has opted for a central midfield trio of Fred, Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes.

Pogba’s struggles recently have seen him start just two of United’s past six games in all competitions, instead being restricted to appearances from the bench.

The 27-year-old, who has flirted with leaving the club on multiple occasions in recent years, recently saw his contract extended by a year until 2022.

But regardless, Palmer believes he should look to leave the club in order to recapture his best form.

He explained to Football Fan Cast that because of the way Solskjaer’s side is set up, Pogba will never be able to properly showcase his best football.

Pogba was used in a different role while at Juventus, and quite often played in a free role.

And Palmer thinks that could be the key to unlocking the French midfielder’s potential.

He said: “I see him leaving United.

"Why was he successful at Juventus? Well, they paid three at the back, five in the middle of the park, which allowed him to play in a free role.

"Go and do and what you’ve got to do son.

"He’s a talented boy, but you can’t keep blaming Pogba if you don’t play him and set the team up the right way for him to perform.

"He [Solskjaer] can’t keep blaming him, because that’s not his game."
