REVEALED: Solskjaer blew fuse with Rashord, Pogba after Man Utd penalty flop

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was furious after their penalty cock-up at Wolves.

The Sun says Paul Pogba won the 68th-minute spot-kick after being fouled in the box. Both he and Marcus Rashford wanted to take it, before the French World Cup winner got his way.

But Pogba saw his effort saved by Rui Patricio, costing United dear as they looked for a second straight win.

Publicly Solskjaer did not criticise the pair, saying they were both designated penalty takers.

It was a different matter behind the scenes and now Pogba — who has missed four of his last nine penalties — has been taken off spot-kick duties.

Pogba, 26, was visibly frustrated at the end of the game and apologised to his team-mates in the Molineux dressing room.
