Paul Pogba who played only two games out of the ten, after he first suffered against Southampton in August, further aggravated his injury after he returned to play against Rochdale and Arsenal last month. Pogba who was seen getting a warm-weather rehabilitation program in Dubai returned with his right foot still in a protective cast. It is now confirmed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he will be out of action for at least another month due to his troublesome ankle injury.
Solskjaer in a recent interaction said, “I don’t think we’ll see him maybe before December,’ said Solskjaer. “He’ll be out for a while. He needs time to fully, fully recover, so I don’t think he’ll be back. Maybe Sheffield United (on November 24) after the international break but probably December before you can see him. It’s the ankle rather than foot. I’m not the doctor but there is an injury there that needs healing.”
Manchester United climbed eight places to seventh in the premiere League at the end of the week after they drew with Liverpool. They also beat Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League in Serbia. Solskjaer also aids tribute to Anthony Martial, who after an eight-week lay-off, scored a goal on his two starts against Partizan and Norwich. Despite missing a penalty both Marcus Rashford and Martial combined superbly to score United’s third goal.
Talking about the same, Solskjaer praised them both as he said that it was great to see them link up after they missed Anthony in the last two months and said that it was great to have him back. According to him Anthony is vital as he is a top striker and to have him back, fit, smiling enjoying his football is a big thing for Manchester United. Solskjaer also stated that he is clever in his movement but he’s not been given credit for his clever defending.
