Interim Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has provided an injury update on Frenchman Paul Pogba who has missed the last eight games in all competitions due to the combination of suspension and injury.
Paul Pogba was in the middle of his mandatory three-match ban when he suffered a thigh injury while he was on national team duty with France. The Frenchman was injured as he served the final game of his three-match ban during the 4-1 away loss to newcomers Watford. He has missed five more games as a result of the thigh injury.
Interim manager Rangnick gave an update on the injury sustained by Pogba last month as the German tactician said that he does not expect the player back until next month at the earliest.
63-year-old Rangnick informed reporters that he spoke with Pogba on phone and that the French World Cup winner still has to spend more weeks on the sidelines before he’s fit. The new Manchester United boss was on the phone with the midfielder for 10 to 15 minutes as revealed by the German manager.
