Solskjaer bewildered over Lukaku & Pogba desire to leave Man Utd: Wait for success

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot understand why his players would want to leave the club.

Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba have both expressed their desire to leave Old Trafford this summer, with the former reportedly close to joining Inter Milan.

But Solskjaer says achieving success at United is the "best feeling" and urged his star duo to stick around for silverware to come.

Asked if he understands the mentality of players that want to leave United, Solskjaer said: "No. The ones who want to leave now haven't been here when it's been successful.

"It is the best feeling you can ever have as a footballer to be at this football club when we're successful and hopefully they want to be part of that - and I want to be part of that."
