Man Utd players worried about fallout from Pogba, Solskjaer clash

Manchester United players are worried about how Paul Pogba will react to being taking off spotkick duties by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer was angered by the onfield indecision between Pogba and Marcus Rashford over who would take Monday night's penalty at Wolves.

The Norwegian said they should have decided before the game who was going to be on duty.

Pogba's subsequent miss — his fourth in nine Premier League kicks — cost United as they were held 1-1 at Wolves and he apologised to team-mates afterwards.

The Sun says, however, it is how he now reacts after being told he can no longer take penalties that is concerning team-mates, who are worried his head is not 100 per cent at Old Trafford.
