What has Bruno said about Paul Pogba?
Bruno Fernandes sent Paul Pogba a happy birthday message via social media – and couldn't help but reveal how much he misses his fellow midfielder out on the pitch.
The Frenchman turned 28 on Monday (15 March) but has been absent for our last 10 matches, due to an injury picked up in the 3-3 draw with Everton, back in early February.
“Happy birthday to this big guy!!” wrote the Reds' inspirational Portuguese playmaker.
“A class lad on and off the pitch. I miss having you on the pitch Pogboom.”
Pogba's injury came at a particularly bad time for both the player and the club, as the World Cup winner was in arguably the best form of his United career to date.
The gifted France international was named our Player of the Month for January, after a series of excellent individual displays.
The Reds have notched up some impressive victories in his absence - particularly our 2-0 win over Manchester City – but Pogba's return would add an important extra creative presence in midfield, as we enter the season's critical final months.
It's clear Bruno cannot wait for his partner-in-crime to be back on the field, and we're sure that feeling is shared by every MUFC fan!
