He said that Pogba was hit by many setbacks which have contributed to his underperformance and not being in the starting line up and playing outside his position has made him unhappy.
“Paul, I know him well, and he knows the group well. He is in a situation with his club where he can 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.
"The match he had to make last month was good and consistent despite a lack of pace. We cannot, however, say that he is fulfilled in what he does at his club.
“With me, there is no such concern, but I try to manage it too. 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. Even if it is also up to him to make all his efforts.”
