Solskjaer follows in Sir Alex Ferguson’s footsteps with warning to Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba has been warned — nobody is bigger than Manchester United.

The French star was given a stark reminder by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the war of words with his agent Mino Raiola continues.

The Old Trafford boss, who yesterday celebrated two years in the job, said (via Mirror): “I would just not stand for anyone thinking that he is bigger than Manchester United.

“No one is. Absolutely no one — and Paul knows this. It is not only for Paul. It is for all of us.”

Solskjaer’s straight-talking response would suggest that he is getting tired of all the media surrounding Pogba’s future after comments were made to the media by Raiola, and it sounds like it came straight from the Sir Alex Ferguson handbook.

Raiola ran his mouth the day before United crashed out of the Champions League to RB Leipzig earlier this month. He claimed it was time Pogba left the club.

For a player earning £300,000-a-week, as per The Sun, it would be nice to see United find him a new club in the summer.

Pogba’s contract expires in 18-months and it’s already going to be struggle to recoup some of the money spent on him in 2016.

And Solskjaer added: “Paul was here as a kid in the Undert-18s. We signed him early on and he comes with the Manchester United DNA in him.

“He knows what we are about. United is about being in a team and Paul has always been an ambitious boy who loves playing football.

“He trains well, he never refuses to train or play, he has a good attitude.

“Of course, Paul wants to do as well as he can when he is in the team, however many minutes he is getting on the pitch.”

Manchester United may be out of the Champions League but they’ve got a really good chance to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

If that can’t drive Pogba on, I don’t know what will?

      True. Bench him for good matches and sell him like gnuts cheaper than he was expecting. Actually you can exchange him with a another prayer that’s when he will understand that he is not big to any club like Manchester United

    • Keith Keys says:

      Nonsense! Ole is doing a great job given his lack of support during the transfer window. Before getting rid of Ole MU should rid themselves of Ed Woodward

  7. Ivan says:

    Would love Pogba to stay..I think he just brings a different dimension to club and the fear factor effect is slowly returning whenever he a Fernandez plays together. I believe OGS should be replaced by Potcheno, coz he has no clue as to what Utd’s starting 11 is. Prove me wrong Ole!

  8. Jannat says:
