Solskjaer Not Happy With Sheringham’s Comments on Pogba

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unhappy with Teddy Sheringham’s comments about Paul Pogba.

The former Manchester United striker was present at Wembley to witness his two former teams, Manchester United take on Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is less than happy with the comments made by his former teammate Teddy Sheringham about Paul Pogba. The former striker was present at Wembley to witness the Red Devils beat Tottenham Hotspur, whom he served before moving to Old Trafford. He is now an expert and had his say on the Frenchman’s performance after the match.

Sheringham said, “He’s a big talent. I think Mourinho tried to get through to him about what it takes to make a proper player. I just tried to talk to Ole but I’m not sure if he was too happy about what I’ve been saying about his players. That’s just me remembering how the good players were when I played with them.”

In defence of his statement, Solskjaer former teammate added, “[Paul] Scholes and [Roy] Keane, they were just so efficient. They just did the job, no flashiness. It was just get on, do it, on to the next one. I don’t think Pogba’s got that in his make up yet. He wants to show how good he is but he doesn’t have to do it by holding people off. Get it, pass it, move it, get round and you’re on. Otherwise you’ll come unstuck when you come up against better players. That, for me, is why Tottenham had so many chances. He was giving them away.”
