Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba “cannot be happy” with his current circumstances at the club, says France manager Didier Deschamps.
Pogba has featured in 11 games for the Red Devils this season but started in just five of those.
He once again started on the bench at Goodison Park last Saturday before coming on after 82 minutes in a 3-1 win for United.
Pogba is on international duty with France’s squad for games against Finland, Portugal and Sweden.
“He is in a situation with his club where he cannot be happy, neither with his playing time, nor with his positioning,” Deschamps said.
“He is not in his best period, he has had a series of injuries and the Covid-19 which has hit him quite hard. He needs to find his rhythm.”
“With me, there is no such concern. When a player is in discomfort 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.”
