Paul Pogba has spoken out about his foot injury for the first time since being ruled out until December.
The Frenchman initially suffered the injury during a 1-1 draw with Southampton ahead of the September international break.
After returning to face Rochdale and Arsenal last month, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Pogba would not return until December.
Speaking soon after Man United’s 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth, Pogba revealed that it would be three weeks and two days before he was able to confidently return to the pitch.

No matter what you think of this man – not a lot, judging by the social media consensus at least – you must admit that, without him, this team belongs in the lower to mid-table region, such is Pogba’s influence on the tempo and precision of United’s play.
While the problem of United’s utter reliance on him for creativity from deep is another story in itself, so much of this season, you suspect, depends on how brightly this unavoidable talent can shine before he inevitably joins Real Madrid in the summer.
