Man Utd fans WILL see Pogba score penalty for club again claims Solskjaer after Wolves miss

By | 23rd August 2019

MANCHESTER United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will continue to allow Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford to decide amongst themselves who will take penalties.

Rashford bagged from the spot against Chelsea but Pogba took over in the 1-1 draw with Wolves and missed with a tame effort.

The Frenchman’s miss means he has fluffed four out of his last 11 spot-kicks.

His 64 per cent record puts him sixth in the worst penalty takers in Premier League history.

SunSport revealed how Solskjaer was furious behind the scenes but it won’t prevent him from stopping Pogba from taking responsibility in the future.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Crystal Palace, Solskjaer said: “I’m sure you’re going to see Paul Pogba score a penalty for United again, we’re practising pens still and Marcus and Paul are still on them.

“It’s not that I’ve left it to the players. We’ve nominated two. You’ll have games where Rashford’s not playing, Pogba’s not playing. It’s good for them to know ‘I’m there’ and be trusted.

“It’s not anarchy and do whatever you want. Last year we had a few – Marcus, Jesse (Lingard), Paul.

“Don’t be surprised if Marcus or Paul scores the next one. There was absolutely no fighting amongst them.

“We’re disappointed that we didn’t win the game. The talk is always more difficult when you don’t win.”

Pogba was the victim of racist abuse on social media after his penalty miss.

Twitter has agreed to work with the police and the club in a bid to crackdown on trolls and punishing the offenders.

Solskjaer revealed the abuse has made Pogba stronger and shamed those who have made racial remarks.



He added: “What can we do about it? Us as Man United we’re not going to ban our players from social media. We’ll still spread the good and try to stop these. There is so much good can be done.

“Paul is fine. He’s a strong character. It makes him stronger. When you speak to him, he’s fine. I can’t believe we’re here in 2019 talking about these incidents.

“Twitter and social media is a place where people can hide behind false identities. There are so many Solskjaer accounts there that I know aren’t me. We have to do something about it – these people spread hate. You must feel sorry for them, they must have problems themselves.”
