Manchester United star Paul Pogba believes he has benefited from playing for France across their three November internationals.

The 27-year-old played for 57 minutes in France’s surprising home defeat by Finland before starting in the Nations League wins over Portugal and Sweden ahead of his return to Manchester.

France coach Didier Deschamps said Pogba ‘is in a situation with his club where he cannot be happy’ and there is a growing sense this could be the Frenchman’s last season with United, but Solskjaer is convinced Pogba will only improve.

“Paul’s had a difficult season last season,” Solskjaer said. “He’s had COVID now. Those three games he played for France helped us and Paul and helped France. He gets his rhythm, he gets his fitness.

“I spoke to Paul and he certainly felt towards the end of the Portugal match and definitely towards the end of the Sweden game he felt stronger for it, he played well, they qualified, of course.

“I think he’s only going to improve. Paul is, as I’ve said, a very important player and a very important person for us and to have him in form and happy is going to be vital for the run that we can hopefully put together now.
