'Pogba may have to consider his options'

English Premier League

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen says Paul Pogba may have to consider his options if he continues to be benched.

The Frenchman found himself on the bench in a few games before the international break, with some former players and pundits suggesting he can't play with Bruno Fernandes.

Despite his recent comments about France being a breath of fresh air after his struggles with United, Owen feels Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to find a place for Pogba ahead of the game with West Bromwich Albion.

"West Brom come into this after a string of poor results. Aside from putting three past Chelsea, they haven’t looked great at the back and have been equally poor going forward.

"United have still to find their rhythm and they must find a way to get their best players all on the pitch at the same time, which is obviously easier said than done.

"You can’t keep Pogba on the bench, and if he can’t secure a regular place in the side soon, he may have to consider his options.

"For all United are inconsistent, they are up against a side that are really struggling, and I expect them to win this comfortably."
