'Manchester United Were The Laughing Stock Under Jose

Adjust Comment Print

The France global was a natural choice to sit alongside caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the top table, as he conversed with reporters from his home country.

Since I've come to this club we've signed players left, right and centre: forwards, defenders, goalkeepers.

"We've just got to concentrate on ourselves, we can't really control anything that other teams can do".

The 56-year-old shot the promo for his new show during a recent trip to Russian Federation, where you might have seen him falling flat on his arse as he threw the puck down ahead of an ice hockey game.

Manchester United are unbeaten since their former goalscorer returned to the club on an interim basis.


Meanwhile, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has highlighted the threat Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial pose to his side ahead of their clash at Old Trafford.

"This manager is asking me to attack more", Martial said at a press conference.

Martial's superb solo goal in the 3-0 victory was his 11th of the campaign and evoked memories of Ronaldo's victor over Fulham in 2007.

"But we've got Liverpool, we've got (Manchester) City (still to play), so we might have a say in what's happening at the top of the table", he said.

Pogba added: "It is his (Solskjaer's) joy".


PSG, who travelled to Manchester for Tuesday's clash without injured stars Neymar and Edinson Cavani, lost 2-1 to Lyon in a recent game watched by Solskjaer and assistant Mike Phelan. That's what we're trying to do at the moment.

United snapped up the Brazilian midfielder during the summer transfer window for a hefty £52m, but he is yet to make much of an impression at Old Trafford, having made just 15 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

'Well I don't think there's any surprise about Paul Pogba being a key player, he's an incredible player, ' said Tuchel.

"It's never about one person when the team is winning games of football".

The France global said he has been told to "attack more" and warned PSG that United were a different team to when the draw was made eight weeks ago.
