Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Paul Pogba remains committed to Manchester United after missing the club's final pre-season game and Harry Maguire could play in next weekend's game if his transfer is complete.
Asked whether he was concerned about Pogba's commitment to United, Solskjaer replied: "I've no doubts at all.
"I wasn't expecting him (on the plane).
I spoke to him after training and he didn't feel right.
"Paul will probably be back early next week training.
It's not an injury, he just felt some pain.
We didn't want to risk anything this weekend and he should be OK for Chelsea.
I hope so." He made the comments during a press conference after his side beat AC Milan 5-4 on penalties, having drawn 2-2 in the International Champions Cup.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heaped praise on his Manchester United players afterbeating Paris St Germain with a performance that was even better than lastyear’s jaw-dropping Champions League triumph at the Parc des Princes. The RedDevils had been on course for a morale-boosting start to Group H rather than avictorious one after Anthony Martial’s second-half own goal cancelled outstand-in skipper Bruno Fernandes’ spot-kick. But 19 months on from securingtheir historic last-16 comeback triumph in the French capital, Marcus Rashfordstruck late to secure another stunning victory at PSG as United ran out 2-1winners in their Champions League opener.
