Solskjaer rests Pogba for Liverpool’s opponents

 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides the latest information about Paul Pogba’s condition. The Manchester United coach said that the French midfielder was likely to be sidelined when Red Devils troops visited Newcastle United’s headquarters in St. James’ Park, Sunday (6/10/2019) evening hrs.

Pogba suffered an injury during a 1-1 draw against Southampton at the end of August. He was forced to miss the match against Leicester City, Astana (Europa League) and West Ham.

Pogba returned to action in a penalty shootout win over Rochdale, followed by a 90-minute appearance at Old Trafford against the Gunners, which marked the 100th appearance of the 26-year-old Premier League player. Unfortunately, he was forced to re-enter the treatment room after teetering when he drew against AZ Alkmaar.

The injuries that have befallen Pogba further add to the list of United players who enter the treatment room. Previously four players were doing the recovery process, namely Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly, and Phil Jones.

To avoid more players risk, Solskjaer might choose to rest Pogba when United faced Newcastle. “Maybe not, let’s look on Saturday morning. There is an international pause as well and it might be time for us to give them an extra 10-14 days to be ready for Liverpool,” he was quoted as saying on LiveScore, Friday (4/10/2019).
