Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defended Paul Pogba after he lost the ball in the accumulation against Crystal Palace’s injury-time winner.
United stayed behind in the first half at Old Trafford, after Jordan Ayew’s goal against the game streak. But after Marcus Rashford missed a penalty in the second half, Daniel James scored a draw in the 89th minute.
With United pressing for the victory goal, Pogba was caught in the center of the field and Palace was able to kick back and Patrick van Aanholt’s low blow squeezed under David De Gea.
But Solskjaer has defended the World Cup winner and insists that he “has no problems” with the midfielder’s tendency to hold on to possession. “I thought he, like the rest of the team, grew up in the game.
“He won the ball very well for our first goal, and he played some high passes. “He knows and we know he will want the ball all the time.” “He knows that yes, he lost the ball, but he will lose it again and try again.”
“So there is no problem with that,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
