EPL: Solskjaer reveals why Pogba played badly against Watford


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has defended Paul Pogba following his disappointing display in their lacklustre 2-1 win over Watford.

Pogba has been in scintillating form for United since Solskjaer took over the reins from Jose Mourinho back in December, but the 26-year-old was unable to exert his usual influence against Javi Gracia’s men.

Though, Abdoulaye Doucoure’s last-gasp strike set up a nervy finish, following goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, the Red Devils managed to hold on for three points.

Pogba played every minute of France’s Euro 2020 qualifying victories over Moldova and Iceland during the international break and Solskjaer says the midfielder must have been fatigued.

“Paul [Pogba] is important for us and we couldn’t keep the ball today.

“He’s been away for two games with France and played a bit deeper, so maybe we have to get him more of the ball.

“After PSG was a mental challenge for everyone. Wolves was worse than this.

“Today at least from 20 to 45 we played some fast, flowing, counter-attacking football.

“It’s [top four] so tight, there’s four very good teams challenging for two places,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
