Paul Pogba to work with specialist coach to avoid injury – report

French international Paul Pogba remains injured for the Red Devils and with no apparent return date, United have taken the situation into their own hands.

Jose Mourinho recently put the talented midfielder in the same bracket of players who currently have long term injuries for the club but fans are yet to know when Pogba will return.

The former Juventus player is suffering with a hamstring injury and initial analysis has shown that it may be due to the way the player runs.

Paul is known for his strength and height but it appears that it has been the cause to his downfall if reports are to be believed.

Pogba has a reputation of taking opponents on and not being afraid to dribble past his man before providing the telling pass but he may think twice before doing so next time.

According to Pundit Arena, Paul Hetherington wrote in The Star: “[United] are leaving no stone unturned to get to the bottom of the issue and a running-style coach could be the next move.

The running style of Pogba has been analysed to see if that could be linked to his hamstring injuries.

The France midfielder creates massive loads of pressure on his leg muscles through his heavy, powerful frame.”

Pogba has proven to be a key player for the Red Devils so far this season and is certainly a miss although his club have continued to win games in his absence.

Despite the winning run, Mourinho will surely want his best midfielder on the pitch as soon as possible.

The hiring of a specialist coach would certainly be Jose’s orders and should the attempt prove successful, it may prevent any similar injuries from occurring to the rest of his squad.

There were also reports that the manager has banned Paul from playing basketball during his free time in the hopes of covering all possible factors.
