Paul Pogba has pledged to do his best for Manchester United this season.
This oath comes on the back of months of transfer speculation where the midfielder himself had set it was time for a new challenge. He had been and still is being strongly linked with a move to Spain to join Real Madrid, but this statement might dampen those fires.
“I’m always good when I play football. I do what I love, it’s my job,” Pogba told RMC Sport.
“I will give my best every time I’m on the pitch.
“Now, we know that there were words. The future will tell [what will happen].
“This point of questioning remains. I am in Manchester.
“I’m having fun with my team-mates, I always want to win the matches.
“I will always give myself thoroughly when I am on the pitch.”
His boss Ole also seemed super proud of Paul’s performance.
“Paul can do many jobs, the attacking midfield job and today more the link player,” manager Solskjaer said.
“And when you’ve [Victor] Lindelof, [Harry] Maguire and David [De Gea] at the back, they can feed the ball, so he’ll get it in good positions. He can do everything a midfielder can.
“He was asked to play the sitting role and first half I thought Chelsea pegged us back so he had to do loads of running down the channels, they created a few problems then, but we’re fit, he’s fit.
“The pass for the third goal was fantastic and the run and pass for the fourth, I just wanted him to go all the way.”
Solskjaer added: “I’ve always said he’s a top, top lad, he’s such a professional. He loves playing, whether it’s training, a behind-closed-doors match or here at Old Trafford.
“He grows more when he comes here. He’s a World Cup winner, he’s come so far in his career. he just wants to play.
“He’s confident and wants the ball. Yeah, he lost it a few times, but get back on the ball and play.”
