Manchester United players were ‘shocked’ by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to take Paul Pogba off penalties after the 1-1 draw with Wolves.

United had the chance to re-take the lead at Molineux after Pogba was fouled inside the box but Marcus Rashford, who had scored a penalty in the 4-0 win over Chelsea, offered the spot-kick to the French midfielder.

Pogba saw his effort saved by Rui Patricio, while both players and Solskjaer have been widely criticsed for failing to agree on the penalty taker before the match.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer was furious with the indecision shown by Pogba and Rashford at such a key point during the match.

After the game, Solskjaer told Pogba in front of the players in the dressing room that he would no longer be taking penalties.

And the report claims that United’s players were ‘shocked’ by Solskjaer’s decision to berate Pogba in the dressing room, while some members of the squad are now ‘concerned’ about how the midfielder will react.

Pogba made it clear in the summer that he wanted to leave United but Real Madrid have been unable to offer enough to lure the World Cup winner away from Old Trafford.

Pogba also reportedly apologised to his United teammates for missing the penalty against Wolves.
