Solskjaer says media portrays Pogba negatively: he’s a top bloke with a heart of gold

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that Paul Pogba is not the bad guy the media depicts him to be.

Following the social media video that went viral on Tuesday, where Pogba appeared to have been having an argument with teammate Jesse Lingard, Solskjaer has quelled all reports that it was a fight.

“For example, Jesse and Paul walking around and it’s been portrayed as a fight between the two boys,” said Solskjaer to the BBC.

“I know you’re here to sell papers and sell stories but that’s nothing, no problems between the boys at all. They’re all professional. Pre-season has been very, very good so far.”

 

 

The Norwegian also addressed the rumours of Pogba being unhappy at Man United to push for an exit.

Pogba's agent was believed to have stated that the French star has his eye on taking on new challenges in a fresh environment.

“Agents talk all the time. As I said, we’ve not had any bids from any clubs,” Solskjaer told reporters from United’s tour in Perth today.

“That’s all I can say about this matter. “There is an agenda against Paul, he’s a top, top bloke. A great professional, there’s never been any problems and he’s got a heart of gold,” concluded the 46-year-old manager.
