The Red Devils managed to leave Burnley with all three points as Pogba netted the only goal of the game, despite being linked to a likely exit
Paul Pogba managed to fire his side to the front after receiving what he termed ‘top’ pass from Rashford.
Man United advanced to the top, finished their for at least till the end of the day, for the first time since 3 years 116 days, but Pogba’s future is still one in the transfer talks.
The French man has been linked lately to a possible return to Juventus where he performed well before making a return to United where he had left earlier on.
During the two previous windows, Pogba made the headlines over and over but fortunately for United, nothing happened.
And now it’s looking likely same may occur after Solskjaer made some big comments on the World cup winner.
Speaking after the game, Solskjaer appeared very happy with Pogba’s strike and composure in the game as he was awarded ‘Man of the Match’ after the game.
“I have always said, Paul is a big, big player for us,” Solskjaer said to BBC Sport. “He is a great character in the dressing room, a world champion and we are seeing the best of Paul.”
Man United were denied an earlier goal when the referee decided to cancel Harry Maguire’s headed goal.
The decision of course did not go well with Paul Pogba who went hard on the referee’s decision saying;
“It was a goal, it was a goal for sure. It was a beautiful goal and the referee decided it was not, a strange decision.”
Pogba’s man of the match award came deserved as he ran the show yesterday, winning more challenges than any other player on the pitch and made 8 recoveries upon blocking multiple opportunities for Burnley and covered so many passing lanes.
Juventus on the other hand are yet to present any official bid as Solskjaer’s comments will come as a discouragement to the Old Lady, knowing that United are not yet ready to let go.
Man United will head to Anfield for the next clash with hopes of remaining at the top as Solskjær believed his boys can still perform against the Champions.
“We know we’re going to the champions, it will be a difficult game but we’re ready for it. These boys are hungry, they want to get better. Sunday will be a test,” Solskjaer told the club website.
