Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has blamed star player Paul Pogba for his average performance when his team played Southampton in a Premier League clash at the St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday.
Solskjaer and his players could only manage a 1-1 draw at the home of the Saints in the first league game on Saturday.
In his post-match press conference, Solskjaer called out Pogba as he criticized the French World Cup winner for the sloppy passes played during the game.
The Manchester United manager also pointed out that Paul Pogba created some chances for the team despite his sloppy performances.
Pogba and Manchester United made a fast start against Southampton after summer signing Daniel James scored a good goal to give the Red Devils a 10th-minute lead.

It was Daniel James’ third goal for Manchester United in four games and his latest goal came off an assault from midfielder Scott McTominay.
Manchester United had several chances to add to that goal from Daniel James but they were unable to take them especially in the first half.
They were punished for poor finishing after Southampton equalized in the second half through Yannik Vestergaard.
Southampton played the final 18 minutes of the game which ended in a 1-1 draw after Austrian fullback Kevin Danso was sent off for two yellow cards.
