Paul Pogba’s latest dancing video has given Manchester United fans hope that his hamstring injury isn’t as serious as reported and the French midfielder may be back on the pitch sooner than later.
Pogba pulled up last week in United’s UEFA Champions League opener against Basel, ruining his big night when he was captaining the Red Devils for the time, and reports came in that the 24-year-old might be looking at a three-month injury layoff.
However, his manager Jose Mourinho poured cold water on those rumours, as he revealed he was still in the dark over the extent of the injury.
Usually, the minimum recovery period for a hamstring injury is three weeks, which would mean the 6’4 midfielder would be a major doubt for France’s World Cup qualifiers in October.
In Pogba’s absence, United haven’t done too shabbily, going on to beat Anderlecht 3-0, Everton 4-0 (Premier League) and most recently, Burton Albion 4-1 (Carabao Cup) to continue their blistering start to the season.
The Premier League leaders next face Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday before traveling to Russia in mid-week to take on CSKA Moscow in the Champions League and despite no clarity over the midfielder’s injury status, he is most certainly expected to miss both the clashes.
United face eternal rivals Liverpool in the first game after the international break on October 14 and the flashy Frenchman will look to be in contention to start what is expected to be a fiery game at Anfield.
