Solskjaer told tactical failings are pushing Pogba towards Man Utd exit

Paul Pogba will eventually leave Manchester United because they are not playing to his strengths according to Carlton Palmer.

The Frenchman is in his fifth season at Old Trafford having rejoined the club from Juvenuts.

At the Italian champions he rose to prominence playing in a hugely successful team that played in a way that allowed Pogba to fully express himself.

But United fans have rarely seen the Frenchman recreate those levels since moving back to Old Trafford in 2016.

The 27-year-old has been regularly criticised for his performances, but Palmer has plenty of sympathy for him.

He feels as if The Red Devils don’t alter their style to suit Pogba they cannot bemoan his inconsistency.

“I see him leaving United,” he told Football FanCast

“Why was he successful at Juventus? Well, they played three at the back, five in the middle of the park, which allowed him to play in a free role. Go and do and what you’ve got to do son.”

“He’s a talented boy, but you can’t keep blaming Pogba if you don’t play him and set the team up the right way for him to perform.”

“He [Solskjaer] can’t keep blaming him, because that’s not his game.”

Pogba was left on the bench for United’s last match, which was seen as a must win outing following consecutive losses.

Solskjaer has regularly defended the midfielder despite an admission from the player himself that he would consider moving on.

The Frenchman has been unable to perform at a consistently high level

But former Red Devil Rio Ferdinand has suggested what Pogba’s omission may mean to the Frenchman.

“If I’m sitting there and I’m Paul Pogba I’m going ‘I’m not in his best team He needs to pull out a result, he’s under immense pressure today and I’m on the bench’.

“What does that say to the likes of Paul Pogba. That’s where if I’m Pogba I’m like ‘where do I lie in his plans’.

“I think for Ole the two in front of the back four are his insurance policy. That front four have got to go and produce. Rashford, Bruno, creating chances and scoring goals is what he needs from them today.”
