Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has played down the bust-up between Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard in his latest interview.

Paul Pogba is never the one to shy away from the controversy as the Frenchman claimed a couple of weeks ago that he’s looking to move away from the Old Trafford this summer.

The world-cup winner recently returned to the pre-season training and was seen having an argument with Jesse Lingard as Victor Lindelof stepped in to diffuse the tension. You can see the action in the tweet below.

Of course, everyone picked up the interaction between the duo and made it a lot bigger than it should have been made.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was inquired about the apparent “bust-up” and the gaffer tried to play down the issue:

“What I have to say about Paul, for example, it looks like it’s gonna be a media, I don’t wanna call it… but it’s an agenda against Paul,” Solskjaer claimed.

“He’s a top, top bloke. He’s a great, great professional, he’s never been any problems, he’s got a heart of gold.

“And, for example, Jesse and Paul yesterday walking around and it’s portrayed as a fight between the two boys and I know you’re here to sell players and sell stories, but there’s no problems between the boys at all.

“They’re all professional, pre-season has been very good so far.”

It seems like controversies follow the world-cup winner wherever he goes and whatever he does.

This latest “scandal”, as everyone’s putting it in the media, is just another one in the life of Paul Pogba who seems to thrive on it.

While, we are still not sure whether Pogba would be a Red by the start of the next season, we are fairly certain them controversies will always be there in one form or another.
