OGS slams ‘agenda’ against Pogba after laughable reporting

Date published: Wednesday 10th July 2019 9:09

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has questioned the media coverage Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is subjected to.

Pogba has dominated the headlines this summer after publicly suggesting “it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else”.

His agent, Mino Raiola, further clarified the midfielder’s stance on Tuesday by hoping for “a satisfying solution for all parties”.

But Solskjaer stated that United “don’t have to sell” in a press conference on the club’s pre-season tour.

The Norwegian also chose to take aim at what he perceives to be unfair coverage of Pogba by the national media, which culminated in some laughable reporting on Tuesday.

“It’s an agenda against Paul, he’s a great, great professional, never been any problems, he has a heart of gold,” said Solskjaer.

“For example, Jesse and Paul yesterday walking around and it’s portrayed as a fight between the two boys and I know you’re here to sell papers and sell stories, but there’s no problems between the boys at all, they’re all professional, pre-season has been very good so far.

“I’m here to talk about the whole team, pre-season and the season coming, Paul’s never put himself out of the team, he’s always wanted to play, he’s given his best and I can’t report anything.

“Agents talk all of the time and, as I said, we’ve not had any bids, from any clubs. That’s all I can say about this matter.

“Paul’s never been a concern for me, when he’s on the pitch, he’s working hard, he’s a true professional, he’s a proud boy. Same answer again, I can’t be sitting here talking about Paul and what agents are saying. We’ve got a few years left of his contract and he’s been fantastic since he’s come back for training.”
