Manchester United are looking to allow Paul Pogba a holiday before the midfielder starts his rehabilitation process from his hamstring injury.
Paul Pogba was forced off in a recent Champions’ League game against FC Basel due to a hamstring injury and this means that the 24-year-old might be out of action for at least 6 weeks, making him unavailable for important games against Liverpool in the Premier league and Benfica in the Champions League.
The Frenchman has been in an impressive vein of form during the opening weeks of the season forming a formidable partnership with Nemanja Matic and as a result, the flamboyant midfielder will definitely be a major miss for the Red Devils.
It goes without saying that United would want Pogba back in action as soon as possible and according to reports, the Red Devils are believed to be doing their utmost to facilitate the smooth recovery for the midfielder.
An Old Trafford source revealed to the Daily Express, “Paul is being given some time off before he steps up his rehab from a hamstring injury.
“He has another scan soon, but the injury has to settle down first and then a full assessment can be made. He will be allowed to head off on holiday during the international break and then return for a comeback to action.”
Manager Jose Mourinho has recently attributed the reason for Pogba’s injury to be the player’s own negligence and is said to have privately blasted the midfielder for not following the club’s medical staff’s advice.
This is not the first time Pogba has injured his hamstring, with the ex-Juventus man previously being a victim of a similar problem at the end of last season. The Red Devils will now surely hope that sending Pogba to holiday will help him undergo his rehabilitation with a strong desire to return to action as soon as possible.
