Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed one of his main goals at Old Trafford is to get the best out of Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman was alienated by Jose Mourinho towards the end of the Portugueses reign at Old Trafford and was an unused substitute in his final game at Anfield last Sunday.

United broke the world transfer record to sign Pogba in 2016 in a move that saw the Frenchman return to the Theatre of Dreams.

Solskjaer managed Pogba when he was in the reserves in the clubs academy and the Norwegian says hes keen to revive the midfielders career.

Hes a World Cup winner, said Solskjaer.

Paul is a terrific lad and I had him (when I was reserve-team coach) as a kid. He was always there, the happy-go-lucky lad.

Pogba is expected to be instantly reinstated to the side against Cardiff with Solskjaer likely to play an attacking 4-4-2 system.
