The French midfielder stayed on the bench for most of the game against Newcastle.
Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Paul Pogba did not take part in Saturday’s 4-1 win over Newcastle due to minor injuries sustained during the international break.
The Frenchman has been in his country’s last three games but only came into play for the final quarter of an hour of Manchester United’s victory over Croatia in midweek.
Pogba then found himself in a similar situation at club, with Solskjaer opting to keep his star midfielder on the bench until the 69th minute on Saturday, when the game against Newcastle still stalled (1-1 ).
The Red Devils eventually scored three late goals to secure the win, with Solskjaer forced to clarify why Pogba did not start the game after starting in the club’s previous three league games.
“Paul had hip and back problems when he was with France, so it was not normal for him to start”, Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“We have big games coming up. Everyone has to perform well when they come. I’m delighted for him.”
On the match itself, Solskjaer added: “A great result and a great character to come back, led by a very inspired captain. The boys got along really well. They look forward to every game. Today I rested a bit and they came and did work for us.
“The season started for us today. We hit the speed of the game and it showed today.”
Solskajer chose to start defender Harry Maguire against Newcastle and the captain equalized early in the game for the Red Devils.
“Harry has scored and leads by example. He has shown a good character, I am happy for him. He has had a few difficult weeks since his last appearance with us.”, a conclu Solskjaer.
