Dinnery is hopeful that Pogba could make his comeback as he has been training well and he is on the right path to recovery. The medical expert reckons the Frenchman can make his way into the squad.
“After the winter break, he should be fairly well placed to return to that matchday squad. I didn’t think it was a great surprise that we haven’t seen him in these last few games, but it’s a big plus to see him doing well in training.
“As long as that return to training continues to go well, he’s going to be around two or two-and-a-half weeks. He’s got good baseline levels of fitness, so I’d expect him to be reintroduced to that matchday squad after that winter break,” Dinnery told Football Insider.
Meanwhile, Pogba has another 10 days to be fully match fit as Manchester United will next face Middlesbrough in the fourth round of the FA Cup on 4th of February.
Pogba had made a rollicking start to his season as he had provided seven assists and he is the joint fourth highest assist provider of the Premier League despite not playing a lot of matches. Thus, Pogba will look to hit the ground running for the Red Devils. There is no doubt Pogba will add strength to Manchester United’s midfield and his experience will definitely count.
Manchester United are currently in fourth place in the standings with 11 wins from 22 matches. United won their previous match against West Ham after Marcus Rashford scored a stoppage time goal.
