Man United handed much-needed injury boost as Pogba expected back sooner than first thought

Manchester United Football Club haven’t had the best of luck with injuries over the last week or so, with both Phil Jones and Chris Smalling having to leave England’s training camp to come back to Old Trafford with problems. However, we could have just been given some good news on that front…

According to The Mirror, Paul Pogba’s hamstring injury isn’t anywhere near as bad as first feared, and the 24-year-old Frenchman could come back earlier than expected.

The report says that the midfielder is now targeting an April 4th return, when Manchester United play host to Everton. Although, the medical staff at the Theatre of Dreams could decide to hold off on that date, and wait for the game against Sunderland almost a week later.

Honestly, being cautious is the best thing in this situation. In my opinion, it was an injury that came around due to an accumulation of playing too many games and the fatigue finally set in. It’d be daft to rush him back into things, because we could end up losing him for even longer.

I think it’s fair to say that we haven’t seen anywhere near Paul Pogba’s best football, and that is definitely still to come. Let’s hope for a strong end to the season from him, and who knows, we could be celebrating a Europa League title come May.
