Deschamps suggests that Solskjaer doesn't understand Pogba

France national team head coach Didier Deschamps has suggested that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t understand midfielder Paul Pogba.

Pogba has been under the spotlight after suggesting that he is having a difficult period at United and according to Deschamps, Solskjaer can’t get the best out of the player as he doesn’t know him well.

"Just see what he was able to do in Portugal and what he did tonight. I know him, I know how he works. He has pride and above all he has talent. When you have to defend, he can defend. When he has the opportunity to express himself, he is able to do so.

"Paul is a top-level player and I hope what he did with us will be useful to him when he gets back to his club," Deschamps said after their game against Sweden on Tuesday night.

Speculation has been rife about the midfielder’s future after he said that playing for his country as a "breath of fresh air"; the player being a key factor after his country qualified for the Nations League finals following wins over Portugal and Sweden.
