Pogba could be out for at least another month, says Rangnick

Paul Pogba’s recovery from a thigh injury has been slower than expected and the France midfielder might not return to training for up to a month, according to Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick.

Pogba pulled up during training on international duty with France in early November. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was United manager at the time, predicted Pogba would be back “just after Christmas” and Rangnick, Solskjaer’s successor, said on Dec. 10 that he was four weeks away from a return to action.

Rangnick is now expecting a longer layoff for Pogba, whose contract is due to expire at the end of the season, reports AP.

Pogba’s absence comes at a time when United is struggling to get the right balance in midfield under Rangnick, who has implemented a 4-2-2-2 formation since arriving.

United plays Steven Gerrard’s Villa in the third round of the FA Cup.
