France boss Didier Deschamps believes Paul Pogba “cannot be satisfied” with his current situation at Manchester United.

Pogba has been criticized for his poor performance this season, with former United captain Roy Keane claiming the midfielder ‘hasn’t done enough’ to justify a starting role in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side .

The World Cup winner has been dropped twice this season after giving cheap penalties in defeats to Tottenham and Arsenal in the Premier League.

Solskjaer also struggled to get the most out of Pogba, with the midfielder struggling to make an impact in midfield or in a deeper role.

And Deschamps believes the 27-year-old is “not in his best time” at United and will not be happy with the way he is used by Solskjaer.

“Paul, I know him well and he knows the group well,” Deschamps said.

“He is in a situation with his club where he cannot be happy, neither with his playing time, nor with his positioning.

“He is not in his best period, he had a series of injuries and the Covid-19 which hit him pretty hard. He needs to find his rhythm.

The game he had to make last month was good and consistent despite a lack of pace. However, one cannot say that he is fulfilled in what he does in his club.

“With me there is no such problem, but I try to deal with it too.

“When a player is uncomfortable in his club, obviously, he is happy to play for the France team.

“He will tell me about his feelings and as I know him very well, it will go in a positive direction. Even if it is also up to him to make all his efforts.
