Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba are ready to link up for Manchester United in the midfield. Solskjaer is keen on Premier League return so that he can continue the performance that earned him the Premier League Manager of the Month in February.
Bruno Fernandes, since joining United, has scored 3 goals and four assists for the Red Devils. His exploits in February earned him the PL Player of the Month. Pogba, on the other side, has just eight appearances this season and has spent his time mostly on the sidelines due to a foot injury.
Before COVID-19 crisis, Manchester United played some of the best football in a while. Bruno has yet to link up with Pogba and Rashford, with Solskjaer excited about the prospect of the midfield pair playing together.
“Good players can always play together, so definitely, they can – it’s a big yes,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“I think it’s exciting. We do have an exciting squad. I’ve got Scott, Fred, Nemanja.
“There’s many games coming up and I’m sure we can find a good connection between them. We’ve been discussing that as a coaching team of course, and we’re looking forward to it.”
When Premier League restarts, Rashford and Pogba will be back. Asked if Pogba is ready to come to action when League resumes, Solskjaer said, “Definitely. He’s had a difficult season with injuries, he said that himself.
“Of course Marcus has as well. For them two it gives them a chance to start on a par or even ahead of the other players. They have been focused mentally so it’s maybe easier for them to train harder now because they can see light at the end of the tunnel.
“It’s exciting, we do have an exciting squad. Bruno coming in and making an impact is great for everyone it was a boost for the club. Getting Pogba and Marcus back would be fantastic. Eric Bailly too, he came back and the performances he put in were fantastic. We’re in good shape fitness-wise. We are looking forward to starting when and if that will be.”
