Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that success will keep players like Paul Pogba at Manchester United.
Despite being one of the biggest players at Old Trafford, Pogba has once again been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons as fans have been constantly reading about his poor performances, and his desire to leave the club.
Comments from his outspoken agent, Mino Raiola, have also kept the rumour mill ticking over, with Pogba’s second spell in Manchester said to be “over”, but despite those claims, Solskjaer has opted against criticising the player, who has failed to add to the Carabao Cup and Europa League titles won in his first year back in Manchester.
“It’s always a demand here at Manchester United to win trophies,” Solskjaer told ESPN.
“And the more we win trophies, the more players will want to play for us – then the higher standard you’ve got to set yourself.
“It’s a demand for the players, a challenge for the players that we want them to improve and get better and better.
“Paul has been here now for a while and, of course, he wants to win more trophies. He’s got a very, very good attitude to training and playing football.
“He loves football, he’s ambitious, he wants to have success – like most of the others that are in the squad. We’re not all the same.
“I would say that this squad has impressed me with their attitude and spirit lately and the way that they go about their work.
“Of course, it’s down to us to win trophies and then we’ll see who will be part of the team going forward.”
