Didier Deschamp, the manager of France, believes that Paul Pogba “can not be happy” with his current situation at Manchester United.
Pogba, who is part of the French team Deshamp for the next friendly matches against Colombia and Russia, lost his status as an automatic starter with Jose Mourinho to Old Trafford in recent weeks.
The 25-year-old midfielder was eliminated from United’s starting lineup to face Huddersfield-Town and Sevilla last month, despite being fully fit, and academics graduate Scott McTominay preferred.
Pogba then appeared only as a replacement in the victory last week in a game with Sevilla and was not used in the FA Cup match on Saturday in Brighton and Hove Albion, despite recovering from a minor injury.
Deschamp believes that the recent lack of playing time in Pokba at club level has probably affected him.
“This is a situation that I should not appreciate for everything I could offer,” he told L’Equipe.
“There must be many reasons, he can not be satisfied with what he experiences in his club.
Deschamps added: “This does not apply to Paul.” Elsewhere, it may happen that the player has left a bit or is experiencing a certain situation with his club.
“It could be Paul now or at another time, and I’ll do it as usual, and I’ll talk to this player to better understand, because I do not have all the information.”
