Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that midfielder Paul Pogba will be fit to face third place Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.
The news that the Frenchman would be fit to face Mauricio Pochettino’s men was revealed by Sky Sports. Pogba was rested for United’s FA Cup clash against Reading this past weekend after he suffered a knock against Newcastle United. I’m not surprised that Pogba came away with some battle scars considering Jonjo Shelvey did this to him.
Pogba has been a revelation for United since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the reigns at Old Trafford following the sacking of Jose Mourinho. The World Cup winner has scored four goals as well as chipping in with three assists in the four Premier League games since Solskjaer’s arrival.
It seems as though Solskjaer – who was United’s reserves team manager following the end of his playing career – has the key to getting the best out of the 25-year-old.
Check out some reaction from United fans to the good news:
