'Paul is getting fitter and stronger. His physical presence is important for us': Man United Boss

Pogba has re-established himself as a key player for Man United. Solskjaer is happy to see the Frenchman get back to his best.

Speaking on Sky Sports after the 2-1 win against Aston Villa, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "Where Paul Pogba is getting fitter and stronger, you get performances like this one. He maybe took 25 minutes to get going, but once he got going, he made a difference for us.

"We're happy with his contribution. It's important we get Paul on the ball, whether it's low in the pitch or higher in between the lines. I know he started off wide while defending, but we wanted him to make runs in behind and get on the ball.

"His physical presence is important for us because we knew they are one of the strongest sides physically in the league. We needed players to match them and Paul showed his strength and skill for Anthony Martial's goal. I was delighted with his performance."

Pogba has been in and out of the Manchester United's first team this season amid the unfortunate Covid-19 diagnosis and the Mino Raiola controversy.

While the Frenchman's long-term future will be assessed in the summer, it's clear that a fit and determined Pogba makes the Red Devils a better team.
