Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated its a very difficult decision to leave French international midfielder Paul Pogba out of the starting line in recent weeks, but however stated that he could get more regular playing opportunities ahead of the upcoming busy schedules.
Ahead of United’s Champions league second group game clash with German side RBLeipzig, the Norwegian tactician was questioned on his decision of dropping Pogba on the bench in recent weeks and Ole has this to say “It’s going to be a long season,” added Ole. “Of course, the depth of our squad is better now. It’s hard to leave players out like the last game with Donny, Nemanja and Paul to start on the bench, as midfielders they are all experienced international footballers. It’s not easy but then, as I’ve said, we have so many games this season, they are all going to play a big, massive part in different periods of the season.
“I don’t think anyone is able to play all of them. There’s a balance when you put 11 together, it’s all important we all work well as a team – is it three or four or two?
All sorts of discussions and who is on form and who maybe needs a break. All these little things.”
Manchester United secured a surprising 2-1 win away to Paris Saint Germain last week and currently on the same point (3) with RBLeipzig, a win for United against the German side will move them to the top of the group H as they are currently placed second behind Leipzig on goal difference.
