Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Paul Pogba is the best midfielder in the Premier League.

Pogba was widely criticised for his unimpressive displays during the final days of Jose Mourinho’s reign as United boss, but Solskjaer he’s keen to build the team around the World Cup winner.

The Norwegian’s appointment as the interim boss has coincided with an improved form for the 25-year-old.

Pogba scored a brace in each of the home games against Huddersfield and Bournemouth in the month of December.

The former Juventus star also provided an assist with a sublime through-pass for Marcus Rashford to score as the Red Devils beat Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium last Sunday.

A United source was cited in Daily Mail:
