?Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that he has no problem with Paul Pogba taking penalties for Manchester United, after the Frenchman saw his effort saved by Rui Patricio in Monday’s 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
After winning the penalty himself, Pogba spoke with teammate Marcus Rashford to decide who would take it. It was decided among them that the Frenchman would take it, but he saw his powerful effort convincingly stopped by Patricio.
Speaking to ?Sky Sports after the game, Solskjaer insisted that he has no problem whatsoever with the midfielder taking penalties, as the decision is left to both ?Pogba and ?Rashford during matches.
He said: “
“You can see the slides on the PowerPoint [to prove they were both designated penalty takers].
“Paul wanted to take it, it’s that simple. Anyone can miss a penalty, he has scored so many penalties and it is normal to miss one,” Rashford said.
“It is simple, if you want to take it, you take it. I took one last week so for me it’s no problem that he took it.
“It’s unfortunate he didn’t score but that’s football. The confidence that you’re going to score is always the same. We practise all week and we score the majority of them.”
