Paul Pogba has reportedly taken it upon himself to try and guide Manchester United out of a slump by ‘issuing a rallying call’ at the club’s training base ahead of facing Arsenal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side host the Gunners at Old Trafford on Monday night in desperate need of a win following a tricky start to the new campaign.
And according to the Sun, Pogba, while a doubt for the game, urged team-mates to stick together through this rough patch in a bid to improve results.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are 11th in the Premier League having struggled to find any form
Pogba is not the full-time captain but reportedly took it upon himself to show some leadership to his younger team-mates following a slump in results.
Solskjaer has won just four games from the last 14 matches since taking the job permanently at the end of March.
The Frenchman has struggled for fitness this season and a knock in the closing stages against Rochdale in the Carabao Cup has seen doubts return over his availability to face Arsenal.
His demands will double his wages, although he has two years left on his current contract
Pogba made no secret of his desire to leave the club in the summer, eyeing a move to Real Madrid, but he remained in Manchester after a transfer failed to materialise.
According to Tuttosport over the weekend, Pogba is keen to see his wages double to remain at Old Trafford long term.
The midfielder is currently on around £300,000-a-week, but would like to see that amount increased massively to around £600k-a-week.
