“We don’t play basketball. I don’t see many basketball players tackling ankles, twisting and turning with studs. He’s not ready to train.” Ole told Daily Mail.
The Norwegian gaffer has cleared up to the press that Pogba’s activity is not harming but will speed up his recovery process, as he is regularly doing physical activities.
“He’s been out for six or seven weeks so he’s gradually stepping it up, walking, on the treadmill and bike. We hope to see him in 2019.” the 46 year old added.
Since the fixture against Gunners, Pogba has not starred in any of Red Devils’ fixtures, and was also out of the French squad that played the Euro qualifiers. However, the manager is hopeful to see his star midfielder return to the pitch by December.
The Devils are travelling to Bramall Lane tomorrow to take on Sheffield United.
