Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he expects Paul Pogba to play “loads of games” for the Red Devils once he has recovered from an ankle injury.
The Frenchman has not played for three months due to the problem, with some even saying that the player will move on in January and won’t play another game for the club. However, Solskjaer eased those fears in his pre-match conference yesterday:
“Let’s get Paul fit first and back in form and he’ll play loads of games. For me he’s one of the best players in the world and looking forward to having him back.”
Pogba’s recovery has gone much slower than expected. It was hoped that the 26-year-old would be back in full training by early December but it appears that the club are now waiting to see if he can make his comeback before the end of the year.
It is very likely that the France international will miss the congested fixture schedule over Christmas. United are due to play six games in total before January 1st with league matches against Everton, Watford, Newcastle and Burnley all coming before the clash versus Arsenal on New Year’s Day.
