Manchester United Football Club are seriously missing Paul Pogba. The mercurial Frenchman has been nursing an ankle injury for almost two months now and the lack of creativity in this team without the 26-year-old is alarming.
All Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can do is work with what he has available and try to battle through this tricky period. The question marks remain about when Pogba is expected to make a return to action.
Well yesterday, Pogba has spoken out on his injury and given a timeframe on a possible return date. Apparently, he’ll be in a plaster for ten more days, before undertaking two weeks of rehab – meaning he could be back out on the training field in 24 days…
“I will still be in a plaster for ten days. After that, I still have two weeks of rehabilitation.” Pogba said live on RMC Sport.
“I’m gutted. To see this team lose without being able to play is the worst. It’s not easy to see my teammates go to training or on the field, but I have to take the time to come back.”
That’d be the 27th of November. At the very least, he’ll miss three more Red Devils games, probably more as it’ll take him perhaps a further week or two to get back up to speed.
The worst thing United can do is rush him back. The Reds need to take care here and ease Pogba back into it. Solskjaer is going to need him over that hectic winter schedule which is the period that is so often make or break for the whole season.
Hopefully, Pogba is staying mentally strong and is raring to return. He’s a tough young man and no doubt he’s chomping at the bit and working hard behind the scenes.
At least now we have some sort of guideline as to when to expect our star man back…
