Paul Pogba injured by the end of February, could miss the Manchester derby

The French midfielder will miss both Europa League games against Real Sociedad.

Manchester United will be without Paul Pogba for at least the rest of the month, according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer spoke ahead of the United League Europa League match against Real Sociedad, which was moved from Spain to Turin, Italy, as a result of travel restrictions to Spain amid a coronavirus pandemic.

United are in the Europa League because they failed to qualify from their Champions League group last year, and in addition to Pogba they have a number of injury problems.

“He is recovering well, starting treatment,” United boss Solskjaer said of the French midfielder.

“It will be a few more weeks, so he won’t play in February, that’s for sure. A few more weeks until we definitely see Paul. “

The injury means United will miss both Sociedad games and league games against Newcastle and Chelsea. The injury also calls into question his participation in the March derby in Manchester.

There are four more concerns about injuries, the Norwegian explained.

“Apart from (Pogbe), we also have a couple of doubts or doubts as to whether they will be capable enough for Anthony (Martial) and Scott (McTominay) so we will have to check them out tomorrow,” Solskjaer said.

“Both Donny (van der Beek) and Edinson (Cavani) are definitely not traveling. They are unfortunately injured. Muscle injuries. “
