Solskjaer Reacts After Leipzig Defeat, Speaks On Pogba Man Utd Future

Manchester United suffered a disappointing 3-2 defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena on Tuesday night to condemn them to the Europa League for the second season in a row.

The Leipzig game came the day after Paul Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, slammed the club when discussing the Frenchman’s future.

He claimed Pogba’s time at Old Trafford was over after being resigned to a substitute role in the opening stages of the season.

Pogba has until 2022 to run on his contract, and it is seeming he could leave either in January or next summer.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in no mood to discuss transfers after the Leipzig game when asked about the chances of selling Pogba.

When asked if Pogba was happy at Old Trafford, he replied: “You have to ask Paul if he is happy or not, I won't speak for him.

“He's working hard in training and he just needs to focus on his performances.”
