Pogba: I'll come back stronger

Wednesday 10 November 2021 09:00

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says he’ll stay positive and come back stronger from the right thigh injury he sustained in training with France on Monday.

Our no.6 limped out of a session with his national team soon after joining up with the squad for Les Bleus’ upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Finland. 

He will now miss both of his country’s final two Group D fixtures, in which Didier Deschamps’ side need three points from to secure their place at next year’s tournament in Qatar. 

It was confirmed on Tuesday that Pogba has since been released from national team duty and will now return to Manchester for treatment and further evaluation.

The midfielder sustained a right thigh injury in training and will not take part in his country's upcoming fixtures.

Off the back of the news, which sees him set to miss several upcoming matches for United too, Paul posted on his Instagram to let fans know how he was doing while promising he will make a strong return to action as soon as he is able to.

“As you can see, I got a little injured, hopefully it’s not too bad,” Pogba says in a short video on his official Instagram story.

“I’m going to do probably another scan in those days to see how bad it is. We’re here but we’re going to come back strong, you already know.”

The midfielder is still to serve the final part of his three-match domestic suspension for his red card against Liverpool, and was therefore already unavailable for our 20 November trip to Watford.

Pogba is eligible to play in our remaining two November fixtures, but his full return appears to be put on hold for now.
Pogba's most recent United outing came during last week's draw with Atalanta, in Italy.
Despite that, the 28-year-old is keen to keep a positive mindset and insists that he will keep his spirits high while he works his way back up to full fitness on the sidelines. 

“We don’t lose faith, we don’t lose the positive vibe,” Paul says on his Instagram story. 

“Keep smiling, everything happens for a reason, we’re blessed still and we’re going to come back, and we keep it up. That’s how it is. 

“Thank you again for the support, all love, god bless you all and we’re going to be back soon.”
