Manchester United star Paul Pogba has seemingly hit back at reports that have claimed he was faking his injury in order to force through a move in January.
The reason to faking was based on his apparent refusal to play for the first-team after failing to get his dream transfer in the summer.
The reports seem to be a little too conspiracy crazy as Pogba did play a few matches earlier in the season and even played through the pain he was experiencing.
However, it’s somewhat understandable where these reports have come from since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the past had insisted Romelu Lukaku was injured until he was sold to Inter Milan and no injury was made apparent.
Nonetheless, Pogba’s situation is different to his former teammate’s and there’s never been any signs in the past of his desire to force through a move away.

Perhaps what hasn’t helped the talented Frenchman is how he was seen playing basketball and so rumours circulated that he’s not really injured.
Of course, at the same time, many players in the past have tried to keep fit on their down time or keep themselves occupied while going through their injury so that when they return they’re not completely lacking in sharpness or confidence.
