Fernandes, Pogba can form a solid midfield - Solskjaer

Manchester coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes playmaker Bruno Fernandes and record signing Paul Pogba can form a solid midfield organization when the Premier League season resumes following the Covid-19 outbreak. 

The 25-year-old Fernandes, who joined from Sporting Lisbon in January, registered three goals and four assists in nine matches, adding creativity to the team with Pogba down and out because of a foot injury. 

Pogba, confined to eight appearances in all competitions this season, was prepared to return before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak and Solskjaer said the Frenchman and Fernandes can flourish. 

"Good players can always play together, so definitely they can... it's a big yes," Solskjaer revealed to Sky Sports. 

"I've got Scott (McTominay), Fred, Nemanja (Matic). There are many games coming up. I'm sure we can find a good connection between them. We've been discussing that as a coaching team and we're looking forward to it.

"Of course, Bruno coming in, making the impact he made, it was a boost for everyone, the club, the supporters and players. Getting Paul and Marcus Rashford (back injury) back would be fantastic."

The 20 Premier League clubs have talked about designs to continue training in May followed by a potential come back to activity in June, provided lockdown restrictions in Britain are eased.

Manchester United are fifth in the league with 45 points from 29 games.
