Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finds different role for Paul Pogba to accommodate Bruno Fernandes

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give a No.10 role to Paul Pogba when Premier League resumes, according to reports. The Norwegian is desperate to incorporate Pogba into his squad, alongside Bruno Fernandes. Pogba has missed the majority of this season with an ankle injury, meanwhile, Fernandes has stepped up following his £67million transfer from Sporting in the January window. The Portuguese presence means finding room for Pogba is a challenge. According to The Sun, Solskjaer is confident he has found a place for Pogba in his first team, where he'll play in a more attacking role. The boss believes the duo will work well together in midfield. The Norwegian told Sky Sports: "Good players can always play together, so definitely, they can - it's a big yes. I think it's exciting... we do have an exciting squad. "I've got Scott [McTominay], Fred, Nemanja [Matic]. There's many games coming up and I'm sure we can find a good connection between them. We've been discussing that as a coaching team of course, and we're looking forward to it. "Of course Bruno coming in, making the impact he made, it was a boost for everyone, the club, supporters and players. Getting Paul and Marcus Rashford back would be fantastic. "Paul has had a difficult season with injuries, and Marcus as well is getting back. So for us, and for them too, this gives them a chance to start on a par or even ahead of other players."
