How Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Convinced Paul Pogba To Stay

Rooney suffered a shin injury in DC United's pre-season game against Bethlehem Steel

"I know that, I've always been a confident person, so I have high expectations of myself", said Rooney.

The World Cup-winning midfielder appeared destined to be heading out of Old Trafford earlier in the season as he struggled to make his mark under Jose Mourinho.

Solskjaer is looking for Pogba, 25, and 26-year-old Lingard to be taking senior roles in United's resurgence like Eric Cantona, Peter Schmeichel and Denis Irwin when he arrived at the club as a player in 1996.

"Now he has got the freedom to play, I think we are beginning to see the real Paul Pogba and let's hope it continues".

The Red Devils, following a terrible start to their season under former manager Jose Mourinho, are now back to their usual standards since Norwegian tactician and former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken the Old Trafford job.

"I don't know if it is with me, but I always put my views across to Ed Woodward and the ones in the club".

Messi hits brace to salvage point for Barcelona
Asked later whether doubt over Messi's participation would affect his side's preparation for the game, Solari smiled and added: "Not at all".

Solskjaer guided his side to three wins out of four in the first month of the year, with the 2-2 draw against Burnley the only blemish on an otherwise exceptional period for the Red Devils.

Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo have also signed new deals within the last twelve months - despite not doing an very bad lot performance-wise to justify it.

"So, consistency is now the key word, that we keep on improving, keep on winning games - but winning games in a better way than say the Leicester one".

"The focus has been around the PSG game for a long time - Chelsea, Liverpool [also later this month]".

"Fulham will be a "character revealer". We are delighted Phil has committed his future to the club".

'Paul (Pogba) now is, Jesse - they're at that age where we expect them to take that responsibility and not just be a young boy that floats around'. "But they're not the games that will move us up the table, that's the other games".
