Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes that the resurgence form of Paul Pogba will go a long way in helping the Red Devils win this season’s Europa League title.
Pogba has gradually transformed from a wanted out player to a cornerstone in Solskjaer’s squad, and the manager wants the France International to become a winner in Europe with the club once again following his 2016/2017 Europa League success with the side.
The United’s coach spoke about Pogba and his goalkeeping department in Cologne on Sunday ahead of Manchester United’s Europa League Quarter-final match against Copenhagen at the Rhein Energie Stadio on Monday night.
“We’re delighted he’s back playing, he’s fit and he’s enjoying his football” Solskjaer told reporters during a pre-match news conference.
“He’s got to make up for lost time and he’s trying to do that. He’s training extra, he’s always a great personality in and around the place. Hopefully we can see him lift this trophy that he’s done before.”
