The midfielder is not happy with his playing time or the way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has used it and is happy to be with the national team.
Paul Pogba says that he is currently going through the most difficult period of his career due to concerns about his playing time at Manchester United.
The midfielder has made 10 Premier League and Champions League appearances for the Red Devils this season, but has been included in the starting eleven in just half of them.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have had an inconsistent start to the campaign, ranking 14th in the English top flight after seven games, while they were beaten 2-1 in the recent European meeting against Basaksehir in Istanbul. to remain a pivotal player for France while in international service, having played a key role in the Nations League victory against Portugal on Saturday night, and admits that he is relieved to be with the national team as he has given a break from his troubles at Old Trafford.
“I have never known such a difficult period in my career,” he said in an interview with RTL.
“The France team is a breath of fresh air, the group is exceptional, it is magical.”
French manager Didier Deschamps is sympathetic to the former Juventus star and hopes to help him get back to his best despite a difficult time.
“He’s in a situation with his club where he can’t be happy, neither with his playing time nor with the position he’s playing,” Deschamps told reporters at a news conference on Monday.
“He is not at his best, he has had a series of injuries and Covid-19, which has hit him quite hard. You need to find your rhythm.
“We cannot say that he is accomplished in what he does at the club level. For me, there is no such concern, but I try to handle it as well. When a player does not feel comfortable at his club, obviously he is happy to play for the France team.
Pogba will have another chance to impress with Les Bleus when they face Sweden in their next Nations League game on Tuesday. Then, he will hope to be back in the starting eleven at United when they host West Brom next Saturday.
