Paul Pogba has been ruled out for at least four more weeks after the Manchester United midfielder suffered a setback in his recovery from a thigh injury.
Pogba last played for United in the 2-2 draw at Atalanta on 2 November but was expected to return in early January. A month ago Ralf Rangnick said it would be around four weeks before the 28-year-old would be in contention again.
But the interim United manager has now said: “A week ago I was told it would take another four or five weeks. I’ve seen him this morning before the training session but currently I don’t know how long it will take.
“He’s not training with the team yet. As far as I know from the medical department, it will last another three weeks, four weeks, and once he is then fit for training it does not necessarily mean he is also match fit.
“It will probably take a couple of weeks before he is really able to compete for the first team.”
