Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that midfielder Paul Pogba won’t be back in action for at least another month due to an ankle injury.
The France international has not featured for the Red Devils since the 1-1 draw against Arsenal last month, and despite the player working hard on his fitness, Solskjaer doesn’t think that the 26-year-old will be ready to return soon:
“I don’t think we’ll see Paul before December. He’ll be out a while. He needs time to fully recover. Probably it will be December before we can see him.”
Pogba was initially sidelined after the draw against Southampton in September and missed matches versus Leicester, Astana and West Ham. He then returned for the Carabao Cup win against Rochdale and the subsequent game versus the Gunners but it seems he aggravated the injury.
With the estimated return date of December, it now appears likely that either the home match against Aston Villa or the midweek clash a few days later versus Tottenham will be the likeliest fixtures he could make a comeback. In the meantime, he could miss at least six more matches.
