Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to reveal the reason why Paul Pogba did not feature vs West Brom.
Ole recently revealed that Pogba’s absence had nothing to do with his form or the comments made during the international break.
According to him, Pogba’s exclusion is due to a knock and he is also a doubt for Tuesday’s Champions League clash vs Istanbul Basaksahir.
He added that Pogba’s knock happened during the international break and the doctors will decide when he is fit to return.
His words, “Paul’s got a knock in the last game and he started feeling it yesterday before the session but he couldn’t carry on.”
“We can’t have any excuses because if you look at the XI that is starting, it’s more or less the same as the Everton one [except] Luke [Shaw] is injured and Nemanja [Matic] is in for Scott,”
“Scott has been all over the world – Serbia, Slovakia, Israel… so that was the sensible thing to do with Scott. We should have energy as well because most of our players played on Tuesday. Harry [Maguire] played on Wednesday so we should be okay.”
