Paul Pogba trains with reserves ahead of Manchester United comeback – report

Paul Pogba has been training with Manchester United’s reserves as he continues to step up his recovery from a hamstring injury, according to reports.

The Frenchman has missed 12 games of action for Man United after picking up a hamstring strain against FC Basel on September 12.

Pogba returned to Carrington last month and reports have claimed that he still return to the match-day squad against Newcastle following the international break.

And according to ESPN‘s Rob Dawson, the 24-year-old has begun training with the reserves at Carrington in preparation for the clash with Newcastle.

Marcos Rojo and Michael Carrick also trained with the reserves on Wednesday as they recover from respective injuries. They are both expected to return to fitness for the Newcastle game as well.

And the value of Pogba being back around Carrington and going through the paces cannot be underestimated.

Think Pogba will be back in the squad to face Newcastle and could get on the score sheet? Make sure to get your surebets in then.

United have lost a certain element of confidence to their play in recent weeks, perhaps even sacrificing a measure of control, and the Frenchman’s return will serve as a galvanising force ahead of massive clashes with Arsenal and Manchester City in early December.

Losing him in the first place was undesirable, but you sense his return comes at a perfect time. Supporters, and indeed anybody associated with the club, will just hope that Pogba isn’t rushed back too quickly.
