Paul Pogba has cracked bone – could take four weeks to heal: report

Manchester United’s problems without Paul Pogba have been evident. The team lacks in any creativity whatsoever, leading to even duller performances than we’ve become accustomed to…

Anyway, the Frenchman has returned from injury once (against Rochdale), but then missed United’s final game before the international break when the Reds lost to Newcastle.

Well now French media outlet L’Equipe (Thursday print), translated brilliantly by Sport Witness may know why…

Apparently, the key United star has a cracked bone in his toe, with recovery time put at seven days immobilisation before two to three weeks of resting before considering a return. In total, that could keep the 26-year-old Pogba sidelined for four weeks total – though it’s unclear when the timeframe started from…

Via: L’Equipe (Thursday print)

For example, if it started from a day or two before the Newcastle game, the four-week period would pencil in a return for the Reds’ Europa League match against Partizan on 7th November – meaning he’d miss Liverpool, the away game against Partizan, Norwich City, Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and Bournemouth… I stress this is just our best guesswork as opposed to anything concrete.

What L’Equipe does state is that Pogba made the pain worse by playing in the aforementioned game against Rochdale. Perhaps rushing him back, for a match in which United should have been able to win comfortably without him, is the real issue here…

Get well soon, Paul!
