Manchester United‘s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an explanation for Paul Pogba’s sudden improvement in form for the club.
The France international was not at his best earlier this season, looking an unhappy figure under Jose Mourinho and failing to play his natural game.
That no longer seems the case after two hugely influential games against Cardiff City last week and in today’s 3-1 win over Huddersfield Town.
Pogba scored two fine goals for United today to set up another convincing win under new manager Solskjaer, who put out a statement damning of Mourinho in his post-match analysis.
Discussing Pogba’s fine form since he took over, the Norwegian tactician explained that the 25-year-old is ‘happy now’.
As quoted in the tweet below from Utd Report, Solskjaer went on to say that Pogba can now score more and create more than previously, confirming he’s very much unleashed the former Juventus man.
Solskjaer: "Paul [Pogba] is happy now. He knows he can score more goals and create chances. He had a few assists last week." #mulive
