Man Utd boss decides on No.1 option to take PKs

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides on No.1 option to take penalties

August 21, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The Norwegian tactician will put an end to all controversy that sparked after the 1-1 draw between the Red Devils and Wolverhampton on Monday.

Paul Pogba's penalty miss on Monday had consequences both for Manchester United and for the player himself. The team failed to win their second match of the season and he will not be considered as the top choice to take penalties.

According to a report by The Sun, the Norwegian boss had a heated argument with both Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford after the game. The former striker voiced his complaints over Pogba taking the shot, especially since Rashford had scored a penalty for the Red Devils in their season debut against Chelsea.

With that in mind, and considering that Pogba has not been able to score any of his last four penalties, Solskjaer has decided to give Rashford full responsibility to take penalties whenever he is on the pitch.

Solskjaer stated after the game that it was up to the players to decide who would take all penalties, but that decision seems to have changed following the outrage caused by Pogba's miss.

The incident also sparked a number of nasty comments from fans against Pogba, who took advantage of the anonimity social media provides to write racial slurs against the Frenchman.
