Solskjaer: There will be no room for excuses

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently disclosed there will be no room for excuses for Manchester United if they fail to deliver next season.   The Red Devils finished 32...

Boss Jose Mourinho showered Pogba’s performance with praises afterward:

“Paul was fantastic – his contribution was amazing,” he said via club website.

“Tremendous. Of course, he exceeds the expectations and exceeds what we agreed with him because we thought a maximum of one hour. I think he felt that the team needed him a lot.“

Pogba added:

“We knew it was going to be difficult. I didn’t have any pre-season. I came back on Monday. It was difficult for the legs, but we played very well. We just want to go up and up, that’s it.”
