Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been backed for the permanent managerial job at Old Trafford by one of his players.

Paul Pogba has been largely controversial since he returned to Manchester United in 2016 and the Frenchman has been able to find consistency in his form under Solskjaer.

It’s not surprising that Pogba has thrown his weight behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the vacant permanent managerial job at Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba has scored nine goals for Manchester United in just three months under the guidance of Solskjaer in comparison to five goals in the first four months of the season while Jose Mourinho was in charge.

Portuguese tactician Mourinho lost his job after a disastrous start to the season, especially in the Premier League.

Solskjaer has been able to revitalise the fortunes of the team since he replaced Mourinho in December.

He led Manchester United to a 12-game unbeaten run in the Premier League until the 2-0 defeat at the hands of top-four rivals Arsenal with Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang getting the goals for the Gunners.

The fantastic league run has propelled Manchester United to within two points of Arsenal who occupy the final Champions League spot.

Manchester United have just eight games to claw back that advantage in their quest to make Champions League football next season.
