Solskjaer’s reply when asked if Pogba will start Man United v Newcastle

Share

It's a big, big plus and it might be that we do get him in from the start [against Newcastle] because you just want to get more and more [quality] into the team when he plays.

Pogba, who had only played twice since the end of August due to an ankle injury, was introduced on Sunday with United already trailing by two goals and went close to scoring during a late attacking flurry from the visitors. He can play the entire midfield.

The Manchester United manager did speak about Pogba while speaking to the media after the loss to Watford, Solskjaer also talked about the different ways he could utilise the Frenchman.

"He can drop deep, get it, play those long passes, he can play higher up and combine like he did [at Watford]".

Solskjaer, who took charge of United in December past year, has guided the team to eighth in the standings after 18 games and their tally of 25 points is four fewer than what they had collected at this stage last season. "This season will be used to find a team for next season, but hopefully we can speed this process up by getting more results", the 46-year-old added.

United lost away at St James' Park 1-0 in October and defeats to clubs in the bottom half have come in between wins against the likes of Manchester City and Spurs.

"And today we've made far too many individual errors and once you do that against quality opposition like them then you're going to get punished".

Solskjaer admitted progress had been slower than anticipated however stated he was centered on growing a group that would dominate and break sides down. We've got such fantastic players and some fantastic young players who are still learning.

"Yes, we're good at counter-attacking".

"There will always be this discussion with him, but it's great to see him again". Yes, we've got pace and fast players.

"But we need to think about winning trophies this year".
