Paul Pogba might not be returning for Manchester United in their clash AZ Alkmaar in the Europa league clash tonight as well, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has nothing but praise for him.
Scott McTominay and Fred has been filling the shoes of the world cup winner in his absence and have been doing a decent job at it.
United are still lacking creativity at times, particularly against deeper opposition and so the need for Pogba to return is evident.
There were hopes the academy product could get some minutes under his belt ahead of the Europa League clash but Solskjaer has ruled that out.
There have been rumours Pogba’s injury is just an excuse for him not to feature as he is said to be refusing not to play in order to force through a move this winter.
Ole: “Let's get Paul fit first and back in form. Paul will plays loads of games. For me he is one of the best players in world. I am looking forward to having him back." #mufc [BBC]

However, Solskjaer wouldn’t do anything as stupid as consistently praising Pogba if a sale was going to happen.
To be fair to the former Juventus man, he initially had an ankle injury that was aggravated by him playing through the pain barrier so this time around the club are determined to ensure he is fully fit in order to avoid him being missing for so long again.
