Paul Pogba Gives Update on Rehabilitation, Timetable for Return


Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is no doubt the club’s most high profile and talented player. He’s also the most expensive player in English football history, but MUFC have not been able to get much return on their investment lately.

Due to a chronic issue with his foot, Pogba was out of action for all of October. It appears he’ll miss all of November as well.

“I will still be under plaster for 10 days,” Pogba said to French outlet RMC Sport. “After, I still have two weeks of rehabilitation.”

Given that time table, it’s possible he could be back for United’s UEFA Europa League match day five of six, Nov 28 at FC Astana. However, it’s more likely that his first game back would be December 1 when United host Aston Villa in Premier League action.

United currently sit atop Group L in the UEL competition with 7 points. In the league, they currently sit 10th in the table.
