Man Utd boss Solskjaer takes Pogba swipe over Rashford commitment to teammates

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted at some disappointment with Paul Pogba's commitment to his teammates while injured.

Rashford is sidelined with a double stress fracture to the back, has vowed to stay in and around the team throughout his recovery, providing input, despite being unable to play.

Rashford tweeted earlier this week: "You best believe I'll be involved in team meetings, team huddles and team sessions throughout this recovery."

Asked whether Rashford had been involved in team meetings since being ruled out, Solskjaer said: "At the moment he's been having loads of treatment, so he might be in meeting today or tomorrow, who knows?

"Marcus is a genuine Manchester United supporter who wants us to do well and help."

When asked if he would like to have seen a similar approach from Pogba, as he works his way back from ankle surgery, Solskjaer said: "We all want this to go well and we've all got different ways of showing how much we care."
