Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that midfielder Paul Pogba wont feature for the club this month.
The Frenchman has struggled with injuries this season but had been an important member of the team when he returned with his injury a setback for United who is still being considered as the main challenger of Man City in the Premier League title race.
Ahead of their Europa League tie against Real Sociedad on Thursday, Solskjaer said of his injuries: “He (Pogba) is recovering well, he’s starting the treatment. It’ll still be a good few weeks, so he won’t be playing in February, that’s for sure. Still a few weeks until we see Paul, definitely.
“Apart from (Pogba), we have a couple of doubts or doubtful ones if they’ll be fit enough in Anthony (Martial) and Scott (McTominay). And Donny and Edinson are definitely not traveling. They are injured, unfortunately. Muscle injuries.”
United are in Turin rather than San Sebastian for the last-32 first leg of the competition due to the impact of Covid-19 as they seek to win a trophy under Solskjaer with the Norwegian insisting that the team has improved since he took over.
His future though remains unresolved as United is yet to start any contract negotiations with him despite his current deal expiring in the next 18 months.
