Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seemingly suggested Paul Pogba is now happy at the club now that Jose Mourinho has gone.
The Portuguese manager was sacked in the wake of the defeat to Liverpool and was replaced by the Norwegian to good effect so far.
Solskjaer has watched his side win back to back against Cardiff City and Huddersfield, scoring eight goals and conceding twice.
Pogba and Mourinho’s relationship was said to be at an all time low when the former Chelsea man was fired and it was believed to be one of the reasons he was moved on as well.
Ole seems to not have any problem with the Frenchman so far but wasn’t expected to have since they both worked together in the reserves.
Solskjaer: "Paul [Pogba] is happy now. He knows he can score more goals and create chances. He had a few assists last week." #mulive

Solskjaer’s comments could easily have been innocent but they are rather suggestive of two things- that Paul wasn’t happy and now is as well as that he wasn’t given the freedom to score or create before.
Nonetheless, the statistics don’t lie with the former Juventus man grabbing two goals and two assists in just two games under the former Molde man.
Of course it’s just Cardiff City and Huddersfield but it’s still just the beginning and Pogba wasn’t putting in such performances before under Jose.
