Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sung the praises of Paul Pogba after the Frenchman was the match winner against Burnley on Tuesday. Pogba scored the only goal of the game at Turf Moor as United moved to the top of the Premier League table, three points clear of Liverpool. The Red Devils visit Anfield to play Jurgen Klopp’s side on Sunday.
Pogba was named man of the match by former United right-back Gary Neville.
The midfielder has constantly been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
But Solskjaer says Pogba has always been a “big player” for the club and says the 27-year-old is now playing at his best.
“I’ve always said Paul is a big, big player for us, he’s a good character in the dressing room,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“They’ve had an unbelievable three-and-a-half seasons so we know it’s going to be a difficult game for us but we’re ready for it.
“I think we couldn’t have asked for a better time to play them because we’re in good shape, good form.
“Hungry, that’s the big thing. These boys are hungry, they want to get better and that’s a test, again. A test of character and test of quality.”
