Pogba provided an assist as the Red Devils began pre-season with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Perth Glory in Australia, thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and James Garner.
The Frenchman came on at half-time as Solskjaer completely rotated his side at the huge Optus Stadium, where the World Cup winner received a largely warm reception despite publicly admitting his openness to ‘a new challenge somewhere else’.
Agent Mino Raiola compounded matters by talking about how he is working to get his client a move, but Solskjaer says he would still consider the midfielder for a leadership role this season.
“No, it hasn’t (been decided),” the United boss said of the captaincy, having seen Antonio Valencia depart in the summer

“So we’ve got quite a few possibilities there and when the season starts we’ll announce.
“Of course we’ll have a good assessment, see how pre-season goes, so there we go.
“But, as you saw, Ashley (Young) will wear it when he’s playing until we decide on someone, yeah.”
Asked if Pogba is under consideration for the role, Solskjaer said: “Yeah.”
