Manchester United Football Club find themselves in an injury mess once again. Scott McTominay is set to be out for the best part of eight weeks with ligament damage, now, Paul Pogba’s time on the treatment table has gone from bad to worse.
Before kick-off of the Arsenal game yesterday, Solskjaer confirmed that Pogba was set to be sidelined for three to four weeks. However, after kick-off, we learned even more information about the ankle issue that the mercurial Frenchman is suffering from.
Apparently, United’s superstar 26-year-old is set to have an operation on the injury, with the Baby Faced Assassin reaffirming the three-to-four week timeframe.
“Three or four weeks maybe, I don’t know. He’s been advised to have an operation by his people and he’ll probably do that.” Solskjaer is quoted as saying by The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell reported.
Personally, I’m getting pretty suspicious about this one. It seems odd that Pogba is now once again sidelined just as the January transfer window opens.
If he is actually injured then Pogba just cannot catch a break, can he? The midfielder has been missing since September, only made a couple of substitute appearances and now he’s out for another month…
Either way, United are missing their two best midfield options for at least a month. The problems for Solskjaer are mounting and right now, it feels like the proper move is to sign at least one creative spark in January. If our Norweigan boss decides otherwise, it’s going to be an extremely long few weeks…
