Paul Pogba Joins United in Dubai, Team Trains in View of Anthony Joshua



For most of us, it would be really nice to be in Dubai right now. That’s where Manchester United is currently training- a place with clear skies and a temperature of 71 degrees at press time. For most of United’s fan base that forecast sounds absolutely heavenly right now. United are back in the Middle East to train again, and today injured midfielder Paul Pogba flew out to join up with the rest of the team. 

The Frenchman missed the original departure date due to a gash on his left leg which required treatment.


The knock came about due to a very controversial and strong challenge made by Jonjo Shelvey in the 2-0 win over Newcastle United last week. When United issued an official statement on the status of Pogba, ahead of the team’s Dubai departure, they were optimistic that the midfielder would be fit for the Sunday clash at Tottenham Hotspur.

Given today’s development, it seems very likely that he’ll indeed be ready to go.
