Giggs feels “sorry” for Solskjaer

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has said that he sympathises with former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and urged him to get rid of midfielder Paul Pogba.

Pogba’s future at Manchester United has been shrouded in uncertainty over the last few months amid speculation that the player is looking for a move away from Old Trafford.

And with the Frenchman now set for another spell on the sidelines due to an ankle injury, Giggs believes that the time has come for the player and the club to part ways.

“I feel sorry for Ole because he’s got to continuously answer questions on Paul Pogba,” Giggs told Optus Sport.

“I say United are on a good run at the moment and that’s without him. He’s come on and done okay in a few games but it’s disappointing at the moment.

“He is a talent, we talk about him all the time, he’s not consistently done it for United. Ole can only deal with the players that are fit at the moment.

“To continuously answer questions on a player that is rumoured to be leaving, to be injured, to be elsewhere when he should be perhaps in Carrington training, is frustrating to a manager.

“You can’t not play Pogba if he’s fit because you haven’t got anyone (else) with his quality to come in.

“Let him do his talking on the pitch, that was how I was brought up. Do your talking on the pitch. Now we’re in a different era, social media’s dominating everything at the moment.

“But it’s frustrating because the lad has got quality. Like I said, he’s not shown it consistently for United since he signed, since he’s come back. Is he happy? I don’t know. Does he want to be elsewhere? I don’t know.”

The 26-year-old is set to undergo an ankle operation and will be out for three or four weeks, according to Manchester United boss Solskjaer.
