Manchester United Football Club have been dealt a Paul Pogba injury concern.
Midway through the first half of Manchester United’s game against Everton, Paul Pogba would succumb to injury. The severity of the problem at that point was unknown.
The fact that he’d be substituted and head straight down the tunnel immediately had everyone concerned. After all, this is arguably the best form we’ve ever seen from the Frenchman in Red Devils colours. Suddenly, he feels like a key player.
Well, ahead of United’s pretty huge FA Cup tie against West Ham tomorrow, our fears have come true – Pogba is set to miss some serious time. At least three weeks, to be exact…
The injury blow to United’s key star was confirmed by Solskjaer in his typical pre-match press conference, with United’s #6 set to miss the rest of February at the very least.
Check out what Solskjaer had to say on the Pogba injury here:
“It’s an injury that will take a few weeks to heal,” manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told MUTV/ManUtd.com. “He’s just started his recovery, working with the medical staff and we’ll get him back as soon and as safely as we can.
“Of course, Paul has been very important for us and we’re not going to take any risks. [So it is] A few weeks definitely.
Thigh injuries aren’t to be taken lightly. For Pogba, it’s about keeping in a positive frame of mind. We’ve seen how good he plays when he’s happy and enjoying his football. If the Frenchman can avoid getting into a slump again, I don’t doubt he’ll come back feeling better and hungrier than ever.
So what games will Pogba miss?
West Ham, West Brom, Chelsea, Newcastle and a double-header against Real Sociedad at the very least. No doubt United are concerned in regards to his availability for the huge Manchester derby on March 6th, too…
This is a massive blow. Football is a funny old game. Not too long ago, Pogba wasn’t a starter in this United side. Recent,y he’s made himself undroppable.
On the flip side, this is a great opportunity for the likes of Donny van de Beek and Fred, who will both be given plenty of minutes to stake their claims…
