Paul Pogba praises Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he launches jibe at Jose Mourinho

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has launched a thinly-veiled jibe at Jose Mourinho by stating that caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ‘not acting’ and is ‘giving joy to everyone’.

Pogba endured a difficult relationship with former United boss Mourinho and found himself on the bench during the latter stages of the Portuguese’s spell at the club.

Solskjaer has implemented a significantly more positive environment at United and his side have reaped the benefits, winning ten of his eleven games in charge.

Pogba scored a brace as United continued their fine form with a 3-0 victory away to Fulham and was full of praise for Solskjaer after the game.

Asked what Solskjaer has brought to the club, Pogba told Match of the Day: ‘It’s his joy. He’s not playing, he’s not acting. He’s just giving joy to everyone’.

Pogba has been in hugely impressive form for United under Solskjaer

While Mourinho was in charge there had been much speculation regarding Pogba’s future, but the 25-year-old certainly seems settled at United now.

Following the win over Fulham, United are in fourth place in the Premier League, although they have played a game more than Chelsea, who face Manchester City away on Sunday.

United return to action on Tuesday when they host Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Meanwhile, United are hopeful that David De Gea will sign a new contract with the club eventually, although the goalkeeper is refusing to budge on his demands of wages of £350,000-a-week.

Earlier this season United triggered a one-year extension on De Gea’s contract.
