Paul Pogba needs to leave Manchester United because his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not understand the way he needs to play, claims former Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly.

The Frenchman has this week made the questionable claim when asked about his compatriot at Manchester United, and whether he thinks Pogba can ever be considered in the world class bracket.

The former Chelsea man then went on to suggest that the 28-year-old still finds himself at the wrong club and needs to seek out a move this summer.

Desailly added: 'He needs a good city. He needs a good team who play for him. He needs a coach who understands him.
