Solskjaer was also asked why Pogba did not travel with the United squadron for a training camp in Marbella during the winter break.
He said, "I don't have to justify every decision.
" He's been in and around here, and of course I thought it was good that he did his recovery somewhere else.
& # 39; As a player, the last thing you want to be is injured. Paul is a soccer player and he wants to play soccer.
& He knows that he now has to work hard to get his best. He has been out for so long now, it is also a challenge for him to get back into shape. & # 39;
It was a hugely frustrating season for Pogba, with injuries that had limited him to only seven Premier League appearances.
The 26-year-old has shown a glimpse of his quality since returning to United in 2016, but found consistency hard to find.
Real Madrid and its former club Juventus are seen as possible destinations when Pogba leaves.

& # 39; That is exactly the same for everyone who signs, if it is permanent or if it is a loan. If you make an impression as a player, if you make an impression as a person, if you can help improve this group, there is of course a chance that we look at expanding and signing things.

Chelsea defeated in the Premier League and Carabao Cup are already going to Stamford Bridge this season with two new additions to Ighalo and Bruno Fernandes to play a Chelsea team that did not add to their team in January .

& # 39; As part of the rebuilding, we see this coming summer as an important opportunity.
& # 39; There has been no shortage of investment in players in recent years, with over £ 200 million since Ole became a manager. Our goal is to ensure that we continue to achieve consistency in the quality of recruitment.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer declines to comment after a woman says that he & # 39; is not fit to manage Manchester United & # 39; because he continued to play Molde midfielder in the midst of investigations into allegations that he raped in her sleep
Solskjaer spoke at a press conference on Friday before Chelsea competition
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer declined to comment after a woman who refused to comment after a woman allegedly raped by one of his former Molde players during his time at the Norwegian club said he & # 39; was unsuitable to manage Manchester United & # 39 ;
Solskjaer was questioned about the ongoing court case on Friday and told reporters: & I think I can only answer what I have done through the club. This is a matter that goes through the legal system in Norway, you have to respect that legal route there. & # 39;
When he was pushed again, the United boss added: & # 39; I have just answered the answer. I understand how difficult this situation is, you don't want anyone to be in such a situation and every part that is involved in that case, they don't have a good time, but that's my answer. & # 39;
Babacar Sarr, 28, who Solskjaer signed for Molde in 2016, just months after the police investigated a complaint against him, is confronted with allegations of numerous rapes and is now a fugitive from justice who left the country after ending his deal in Russia and Saudi Arabia – two countries without extradition treaty with Norway.
Solskjaer had controversially continued to play Sarr for Molde during a May 2017 investigation into claims that the midfielder had non-consensual sex with a woman while she slept after a night full of alcoholic parties. Solskjaer said at the time of Sarr & # 39; s trial that he did not intend to imply the innocence of the player.
One of Sarr & # 39; s accusers told The Telegraph that Solskjaer & # 39; unsuitable & # 39; is to manage United.
& # 39; I don't think he has the values to manage a huge football club – or no people at all, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; You must have good values to recruit good players. These are people who are stars. They can do anything. So, if you have that kind of person to look up to, I think you're kind of f *****. & # 39;
Sarr has denied all wrongdoing in all rapes against him.
& # 39; This group stays together, don't worry about it & # 39 ;: Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hits back on & # 39; vanity & # 39; claims after midfielder Fred said the team does not stick together
- ] Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused claims that his side has a vanity problem
- It comes after midfielder Fred said it team has problems sticking to each other
- Solskjaer insisted that the spirit in the camp anticipates well on the Chelsea game
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rejected claims of Manchester United midfielder Fred that & # 39; vanity & # 39; a problem is within the team and players don't stay together
The Brazilian's comments came during the winter break and Solskjaer was asked about them on his return to Carrington at the end of a training stop in warm weather in Marbella.
& # 39; This group stays together, don't worry about it, & # 39; said the United boss. "I have not seen or do not understand the interview, I have seen him sitting there in his kitchen.
& # 39; Fred knows that this group wants to give everything together. I don't know how to interpret what he said, but I have no problems with Fred and no problems at all with the group. & # 39;
Fred & # 39; s comments were all the more surprising because he played a greater role in recent weeks in the absence of Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay.
& # 39; We now miss a lot & # 39 ;, he said. "First of all, we have to sort things out in the field. We lack creativity, especially in midfield.
We also have to improve as a group. Our group lacks the "matching mentality". We have many problems.
"There are many discussions. Every group has this type of problem, but ours has this. Vanity is also a problem and we have to stop this and just run onto the field. We must hold a goal in our head, focus on it and move on.
& # 39; We must be on the same page and today some players have different goals, there are players who only want to solve problems on their own and this is wrong. & # 39;
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer declares Odion Ighalo ready for Manchester United debut in Chelsea … despite signing the loan not yet trained with his new teammates!
- Odion Ighalo joined Manchester United on January transfer deadline day
- The 30-year-old still has to train with his new teammates since he the move has sealed
- United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Ighalo is ready to make his debut
- The Red Devils travel to Chelsea in a crunch clash on Monday evening
Ighalo stayed home when United went to Marbella for a warm-weather training camp this week due to concerns that he would not be admitted back to the country amidst the coronavirus alarm after signing a loan from the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
The 30-year-old Nigeria striker was also trained as a precaution at Carrington and worked with a personal fitness trainer in the center of Manchester.
Ighalo might have a session with the rest of the team on Sunday, but Sol skjaer supported the former Watford man to be prepared if he was called off the bench against Chelsea .
"Well, it didn't take me long (as a player)," said the United boss. & # 39; I didn't have a training session to continue. As a striker you are thrown out there and it may be that he has to get off the couch and give us a goal. He does what he did.
"He will be involved with us and will travel with us. Now he is outside of that two-week period, which was just a precaution we took, let's see if he is involved or not.
We have contacted me We loved him and of course we did our own program and he did his. It would always be a case in which he had to integrate into China, and he should get used to the players, the team as quickly as possible,
& # 39; He has been working very hard and probably squeezing himself sometimes to be with his favorite club at the age of 30, but he has earned it and hopefully he impresses us so we can see him play.
& # 39; The injury to Marcus Rashford, it must be said that we needed another attacker. When we got the chance to give Odion a loan that was a goal scorer for us, a top scorer in the Africa Cup of Nations last year, he can help the club. He is a very professional player, a good boy and will give something to the group.
"At the end of January, Anthony (Martial) and Mason (Greenwood) played many games. We didn't have that little spark, but we hope that adding Odion will give us a different type of striker. & # 39;

They face Chelsea on Monday night, currently occupying fourth place

The Norwegian had a hard time in his first full season – his side is currently eighth in the Premier League six points from the top four of the Premier League.
Ex-Spurs boss Pochettino has not had a job since November, and with rumors connecting the Argentinian with the Old Trafford hotseat constantly in the headlines, Sharpe thinks it has an effect on Solskjaer's ability to work to do .
Former track boss Mauricio Pochettino remains linked to the Old Trafford hotseat
& # 39; Every week at a club like United. You have to win every race and if you don't, the pressure increases, & Sharpe told Sky Sports .
& # 39; He will have set a goal at the start of the season that I believe it would have been top four. If they don't get those questions, chats will be held behind the scenes.
& # 39; The situation in Pochettino does not help, but I also think that Ole knows the pressure associated with managing the club.
& # 39; He does not need external influences that put extra pressure on him, he will already feel it. & # 39;
Lee Sharpe believes that Solskjaer will already feel the pressure without external influences
Sharpe played for Manchester United between 1988 and 1996 and won three Twice Premier League titles and the FA Cup.

More to follow …
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has supervised an eviction since he was in charge of Manchester United . A total of nine senior players have left for permanent deals or loans and more will follow.
Solskjaer made it clear that he had thrown away those he saw in the future as not worthy: & You had to demolish the house and you had to remove players who were not in their minds here. We now have players here who go that extra garden, that culture that I want to establish. & # 39;
But how have things gone since they left? Sportsmail has taken a look at the deadwood of the Norwegian and how they have performed in their new clubs.
to leave Marouane Fellaini (February 1, 2019 – Shandong Luneng)
Marouane Fellaini was never the most talented member of the Manchester United team. Instead, previous managers seemed to use it as a kind of human deus ex machina, capable of conjuring something out of the blue at the end of games.
Solskjaer did not seem to like it and instead let him go to Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League. He scored eight goals in 22 games ahead of them after moving to fifth place in the league last February.
Ander Herrera (30 June 2019 – PSG)
Ander Herrera developed into something of a representative on the field for Jose Mourinho. Nevertheless, he never seemed out of favor with Solskjaer. He started his first game with the lead and played a lot in his caretaker spell.
What was a problem was that Herrera's contract was running out and he decided to sign a five-year contract with PSG in the summer. His chances have been limited there and he has only played 13 games since joining.
Antonio Valencia (June 30, 2019 – LDU Quito)
The club captain of Manchester United was in his last season. Antonio Valencia struggled for performances under both Mourinho and Solskjaer and closed the season with only nine games to his name.
United decided not to extend his deal and moved to LDU Quito in his native Ecuador, where he played 25 times in all competitions.
Romelu Lukaku (8 August 2019 – Inter Milan)
There were always doubts about Romelu Lukaku at United, but the man's goals.
He was also heavily responsible for the victory over PSG that earned Solskjaer his job. But the Norwegian was more than happy to sell it in the summer.
He has since gone to Inter and made an impression, grabbed 16 goals in just 22 league games, and helped them face a serious title challenge. With United struggling for strikers, this is definitely one for Solskjaer to regret.
Alexis Sanchez (August 29, 2019 – Inter Milan (loan))
There was long frustration about how Alexis Sanchez performed at United. He only scored three goals in his season and a half on Old Trafford and it was no surprise when they let him leave in the summer.
He had a heavy temporary spell at Inter, causing him to be injured in October, and was excluded until mid-January. He has only played nine games and scored once. & # 39;
Alexis returns in the summer and proves you are wrong, & # 39; Solskjaer said recently. It would be a bit of a surprise.
Chris Smalling (August 30, 2019 – Roma (on loan))
There was not much to suggest that Chris Smalling was not in the plans of Solskjaer at United would be after having played a lot towards the end of last season. However, the arrival of Harry Maguire meant that he was too demanding.
He moved to Roma on loan and has been excellent there.
He played the vast majority of their games and they have always wanted to sign him permanently in the summer. His ten-year spell at United is almost over.
Matteo Darmian (2 September 2019 – Parma)
Matteo Darmian spent four years with United without doing much. It was no surprise to see him let him leave for Parma in the summer, especially after the previous season in which he only played seven times. He has played 16 teams. Given that it cost a reported fee of just £ 1.4 million, it is a bargain for a right-hand back-top that has been a solid asset.
Ashley Young (January 17, 2020 – Inter Milan)
By the time Ashley Young left United, he was mainly used as a replacement.
The likes of Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw were him front left front left and Aaron Wan-Bissaka locked the rear right lock.
He moved to Inter after much hassle in January and settled there immediately. He has played three times since his move and seems to be first choice under Antonio Conte.
Marcos Rojo (January 30, 2020 – Estudiantes (loan))
It was clearly time for Marcos Rojo to leave when Estudiantes came to call in January. This season he played mainly in the Europa League and the Carabao Cup and the loan made sense.
He has yet to make his return to the Estudiantes line-up, so it remains to be seen how he does that.
