Solskjaer heaps praise on two Man United stars ahead of Copenhagen tie

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial for the strides they've made since the football restart.

The duo has been impressive for the Reds as they qualified for the Champions League and reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League. 

Speaking ahead of the quarter-final match against FC Copenhagen, Solskajer was full of praise for the French pair.

“I've answered numerous questions on Paul, and we're delighted that he's back playing. He's fit, he's enjoying his football,” said the boss.  “Of course, he's got to make up for lost time, and he's trying to do that.

“He's training extra, he's always a great personality in and around the place, and hopefully we can see him lift this trophy [like] he's done before. He's professional, he's a fantastic boy, and I'm delighted that we've got him in the team.”

Pogba missed a huge chunk of the 2019/20 season due to injuries, making just eight appearances before the Premier League resumed in June. 

He however played a part in all of the club's 12 matches since the restart and seems to have fully recovered from the niggling injuries. 

Martial on the other hand has enjoyed arguably his best season in a Man United shirt, scoring 23 goals in the making him the club's leading scorer this season. 

“Anto has made huge strides this season in many aspects of his game,” began Ole. “Of course, I like him scoring between the posts, scoring simple goals because we know he can score worldies.”

The duo is expected to feature as United chase a semi-final ticket on Monday night against Copenhagen.
