Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with Paul Pogba’s man-of-the-match performance against Bournemouth on Sunday, insisting the Frenchman is better when he is playing simple.
The midfielder, who has been criticised for showboating in the past, scored twice and put in a fine all-round display at Old Trafford as United won for the third straight game under Solskjaer, scoring 12 goals during that run.
Solskjaer was full of praise for Pogba’s disciplined performance, having now scored more in two games under the caretaker manager (four) than he did in his previous 20 under Jose Mourinho.
“That is a top, top performance for a midfielder, because it’s all-round. It’s work-rate, he’s dangerous in the box, he wins headers, tackles, and there’s no showboating,” said Solskjaer
