Man Utd boss Solskjaer confirms Pogba injury setback

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has suffered a setback over his thigh injury collected on France duty.

It was initially thought that the Manchester United midfielder would be sidelined for six to eight weeks after he was hurt taking a free-kick in training, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted on Friday that it could be significantly longer.

"Sometimes you hope, fingers crossed, for six or seven weeks and the worst-case scenario is 10, 11, 12 weeks with muscle injuries like this," said Solskjaer.

"I'm not a doctor, but he can't say how quickly it will heal. Hopefully just after Christmas we can see him."

Pogba is currently doing his injury recovery in Dubai.
