"It's an agenda against Paul, he's a great, great professional, never been any problems, he has a heart of gold," the former Red Devils striker said, as per BBC Football.

"Jesse and Paul yesterday, walking around, and it's portrayed as a fight between the two boys, and I know you're here to sell players and stories but they're all professional."

The Norwegian tactician also briefly commented on Pogba's future after the Frenchman's agent Mina Raiola slammed of the club for not protecting his client from criticism.

"Paul's never put himself out of the team, always given his best, and I can't report anything but that agents talk all the time," Solskjaer added.

"I can't be sitting here talking about Paul and what agents are saying, we've got a few years left of his contract and he's been fantastic."
