Manchester United will be without Paul Pogba for another month, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær has confirmed. The French midfielder, who has missed most of the season with an ankle injury, recently marked his return with substitute appearances against Newcastle and Watford, but has now suffered another, separate ankle problem.

Quoted by the Guardian, Solskjær commented:

“Paul came back after a long spell out, played in two games, had a reaction, and couldn’t go to Burnley. He felt his ankle was sore, so we did a scan. It’s not the same injury, it’s a different injury.”

The United boss stressed that it was not a “major” problem, and added that Pogba could recover in as little as three weeks. However, we’ve learned not to trust injury news, particularly when it comes to Pogba, so who knows when we can expect to see him turning out again. Solskjær also confirmed that Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial will miss Saturday’s FA Cup clash against Wolves with illness.
