Robin van Persie claims Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should do a joint-interview to clarify Frenchman’s future: ‘Now there are a lot of questions going around’
- Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United is nowhere nearer to being resolved
- He has been persistently linked with a move to Real Madrid or return to Juventus
- Pogba’s injury problems have also not helped the furore surrounding his future
Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has called on Paul Pogba and his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to conduct a joint-interview to clarify the Frenchman’s situation.
Questions continue to be asked about the Frenchman’s future at Old Trafford – he has been persistently linked with a move to Real Madrid or a return to his former club Juventus.
Pogba’s injury problems have not helped the furore surrounding his future – he has only featured eight times this season for United in all competitions.

And Van Persie, who won the Premier League with United in 2013, wants Pogba and Solskjaer to go public in order to make clear whether the former is set to stay in Manchester.
Van Persie told Stats Perform: ‘I think for Pogba, and Manchester, it would be best to… I don’t know, do an interview together or something, together with the coach, and just say, “Listen: this is what I want, this is where I would like to play – judge me on that. I’m happy, or I’m not happy, or whatever”. Now, it’s a lot of questions going around.’
Van Persie claims the French World Cup winner should reveal to United what his favourite position is on the pitch before disclosing whether he is actually happy or not with the Red Devils.
‘Pogba, in my opinion, is a world-class player, he has proven it over the years. He has it all.

‘But first, I think with him, and that’s after a couple of years now, I think he should come out and he should say what his favourite position is. If that’s done, then people can judge him based on this position. Now, I don’t think people really know if he’s a six, if he’s a number 10… that’s a big difference.
‘I have the feeling people judge him a bit unfairly. They expect 20 goals, they expect 20 assists, they expect Pogba to make Manchester United champions. But, is he a six? If he’s a six, then you cannot expect 20 goals. If he’s a 10, maybe 12 to 15 goals. So, it’s not really fair on him because it’s not really clear.
‘Then, you have the second subject: is he happy there? There’s constantly rumours, you have the agent constantly giving interviews, you have the coach answering questions almost every day, every week. There’s a lot going on beside the main event, and the most important thing is football.’
