In the absence of Harry Maguire, Pogba was given the armband when United hosted Granada in the Europa League. Pogba was a dominant figure in the game and was crucial in the opening goal scored by Cavani. The Red Devils cruised through to the next round under the guidance of the Frenchmen. The recent performances indicate why the manager chooses to trust the decisions of their star midfielder.
“Paul has been in the spotlight ever since he started at Man United, so I don’t see a problem with it,” the Norwegian said. “Paul’s main focus is to get as much out of his career as possible. He wants to be the best player he can be and he wants to win as many trophies as possible.
“He has already won the World Cup and I can see his focus now is all about winning and playing the best possible football that he can. I know his personality. He is so lively. He gets energy from making people happy. But his main focus will always be to win football games for us.”
🗣 The boss hailed a "professional performance" from the Reds as we march on in the Europa League…

Solskjær says United next focus is to get past Roma in the Europa League to win the coveted European silverware. He hopes that his team can produce the level of performances they have shown throughout the competition. Solskjær is not ruling out United shortening their 11-point deficit to Manchester City to winning the title, saying “stranger things” have occurred.
WORTH THE WAIT
Amazon’s recent success through documentaries like the ‘All or Nothing’ series that covered the Manchester City team, the Tottenham Hotspur squad and the Brazilian National side will give both fans and Pogba assurance. Amazon also has experience dwelling on the life of players when they filmed the life of Sergio Ramos in 2019. The Leeds United documentary ‘Take Us Home’ looking at the Yorkshire club’s Premier League promotion attempts under Marcelo Bielsa was released on Amazon Prime, while several other films are set to come out in recent months.
