Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Issues Paul Pogba Injury Update
Manchester United Midfielder Paul Pogba

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Paul Pogba will not be back in action until December.

Pogba is recovering from an ankle injury and has been on the sidelines since the end of September.

The France international midfielder had played just 450 minutes in the Premier League for the Red Devils so far this season.

Solskjaer has said that the Old Trafford faithful are unlikely to see the 26-year-old back in action until December.

“I don’t think we’ll see Paul before December,” Solskjaer told United’s official website. “He’ll be out for a while.

“He needs time to fully recover. I don’t think he’ll be back, maybe for Sheffield United after the international break, but probably it will be December before we can see him.

“I’m not a doctor but there is an injury there that needs healing. Yes, it’s his ankle.”

Blow For Manchester United

Pogba was not playing well for United before he suffered the injury, but it is still a blow for the Red Devils that the former Juventus star will miss all action until December.

The 26-year-old has been far from his best during his second spell at United, but he remains an important player in the team and can be relied upon to make a difference in big games.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the midfielder made 34 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for the Red Devils, scoring 13 goals and providing nine assists in the process.

Top-Four Challenge

United are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 13 points from 10 matches.

The Red Devils are as many as seven points behind Chelsea, who are currently fourth in the standings and occupy the final Champions League spot.

United will return to action on Wednesday evening when they take on Premier League rivals Chelsea away from home in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.
