OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER says Paul Pogba has suffered a recurrence of his ankle injury that will keep him out of action for a further spell.
The France midfielder was expected to be in Manchester United’s squad for this evening’s trip to Arsenal, but was a notable omission at the Emirates Stadium.
“He’s injured,” the Norwegian told BT Sport. “He’s feeling some discomfort in his ankle and he’ll be out for a few weeks, definitely.”
Pogba has made only seven appearances for United this season, but had played two games from the bench over the festive period, including the entire second half in a 4-1 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day.
He was not in the squad for the game against Burnley on 28 December, an absence explained away as scheduled rest.
Now it seems as though he’ll miss another extended period of time having already missed 10 consecutive games before his recent attempt at a comeback.
