Rangnick opens up says Pogba not returning
Ralf Rangnick, the Manchester United boss, has provided updates on Paul Pogba’s injury.
The German said the Frenchman is not expected to return to action soon and will remain unavailable and unable to train for another ‘four or five weeks’.
The interim manager said that Pogba will not return to training for ‘at least a month’.
The France international suffered a groin injury while on international duty with his national team in November and has spent time in Dubai rehabilitating.
Apart from the injury, Pogba is still deciding whether to extend his stay at Old Trafford or not.
There are rumours that the 28-year-old could leave Old Trafford in June with Juventus, Real Madrid and other top European clubs monitoring the situation.
Rangnick told the club’s official website: “As far as I know, I was told a week ago, it would be a minimum of at least another four or five weeks before he [Pogba] is fit for training again.
“I saw him this morning before the training session, he was in the locker room, and I hope he will be back as soon as possible.
“Right now, he’s not been part of the training group and, even if he was back whenever, two, three or four weeks, it will take some time.
“It’s one thing to be training fit but, on the other hand, he needs to be fit for the match and competition in either the Premier League or the Champions League and this will still take some time.”
