Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels hopeful that Paul Pogba’s return from injury can help his team rediscover their “spark”. Pogba has largely resisted the course of his previous campaigns at Old Trafford by becoming a crucial player.

He announced his return from a thigh injury with the winner over AC Milan in the Europa League last 16-second leg. Solskjaer says that he has come back from country duty full of motivation to end the season on a high.

“It’ll be a massive boost and he’s come back bright and he’s ready to go,” Solskjaer told reporters (via the Manchester Evening News). “We know how important he will be for us and how important he has been.

“To have players of his quality out for longer periods, that just shows the quality of the others as well. But towards the end of the season now, having Paul back fit and getting our forwards back firing again, hopefully we can get that spark and score more goals again.”

United headed into the international break after exiting the FA Cup in a 3-1 quarter-final defeat to Leicester. Marcus Rashford missed that game through injury and also missed out on taking part with England.
