“Has been working hard”- Solskjaer praises Manchester United star

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised midfielder Paul Pogba and feels that the club will benefit from his return.

The French international was out of action for a couple of months due to an injury but was back in the Red Devils’ squad for their match against Watford. Pogba was on the bench but came on as a substitute in the 64th minute, replacing Jesse Lingard. However, Manchester United ended up losing 2-0 to the Hornets courtesy of goals from Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney.
