Solskjaer: Pogba's attitude has been perfect
Solskjaer has refused to take credit for Paul Pogba's good form, stressing the player's attitude has been "perfect"...
Asked if he can get the best out of Lukaku and Alexis, like Pogba, the manager said: "You know, I think you've put it the wrong way there because I cannot do anything for their performances on the pitch. Paul has done it himself, the players have done the performances. My chats with Anthony, Romelu, Alexis, whoever, have not felt that they can't produce the best football. I'm here to guide them, help them on the path and then it's up to them to do it on the pitch.” “I don't agree that I've done that with Paul and I can do that with Romelu and Alexis. It's up to them when they get their chance - that's the name of the game when you're a footballer. You've got to do it yourself. Yes, you want help from your team-mates and your manager. I give them some guidelines. Of course, there's been lots of talk on the freedom of expression but that's how I've always been as a manager. You can't tell all the players what to do in this position, that position. They're here for a reason, they're good players and it's up to them to use their imagination, creativity and just enjoy playing for this club because that's the best time of your life. But it's all about time, being the manager for a little while." “I've said it many times that Paul is a top player. He's one of the top, top players in the world. Attacking wise he's done really well, he's a big lad, he can win headers for us, he tackles so he's been the same as the others to be fair. His attitude has been perfect and that's key when you've got players with his quality - when they've got the attitude. You should be tired towards the end of every single game because then you've got days to recover. He's been top class and, yes, he's someone we're looking to build a team around, of course, when you've got quality players like this. But there are so many good quality players."
