Paul Pogba ruled out for season by Ralf Rangnick

Paul Pogba may never see the field in Manchester United colours again.

Against Liverpool, our game was perfectly summed up by Paul Pogba who was subbed off after just seven minutes with injury. He didn’t want to continue. The lads were being battered all over the pitch.

Our Frenchman was later ruled out of at least the next couple of games with the muscular problem. The severity of the problem remained unclear.

Today, during his pre-match press conference, Ralf Rangnick offered us a further update on Pogba. Sadly, for fans of the midfielder, it’s bad news. The United star has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. With his future still up in the air, there’s a very good chance he has played his last game for the Reds.

Check out what the gaffer had to say in full here:

“With Paul, it seems, after the scan we did yesterday or the day before yesterday, it’s very unlikely that he will play until the end of the season again,” Rangnick said to the media, including

“The doctor told me that it will take four weeks, minimum, for him to recover and, since the last game is at the end of May, I don’t think it’s very likely that he will be able to play again.”

Pogba is out injured for the next four weeks, ruling him out until mid-May. With recovery time required on top of that, I’d be surprised if we see the World Cup winner back out on the field in United colours.

I owe Pogba an apology in one regard. I genuinely suspected he was faking an injury. Obviously, we now know that’s not true. That said, I’m still happy he’s going this summer.

It has been an £89million experiment that hasn’t worked out. Pogba’s big personality has overshadowed his poor on-field performances. At the end of the day, what happens on the field is all u fans care about.

Pogba has spent more time flirting with other clubs via the media, his brother and agent, than he has focusing his energy on making United an elite club side again. That’s disappointing.

No doubt he’ll go on to enjoy great success wherever he ends up. He’s too good of a player not to do exactly that. I will be glad to see the back of him in Manchester, though.

Get well soon, Paul.
