Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has confirmed midfielder Paul Pogba’s return date to training after an injury problem, MySportDab reports.
Pogba has been out injured for over two month with an ankle problem and has made just six appearances so far this campaign in all competitions.
The France international’s future still remains unclear with links of a transfer to Real Madrid or a summer return to Juventus.
But when asked how close Pogba was to returning back to training, Solksjaer confirmed by next week.
‘Pogba will start training with team again next week properly. Let’s see how it goes,’ Solskjaer said.
Solksjaer also provided positive updates on both Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah, with the defensive options close to return to action, but Jesse Lingard is a doubt for Sunday’s match against Everton.
‘I’m not certain about Lingard but I hope he can play,’ said the United boss.
‘He did not training today so he will undergo a proper check on Saturday possibly.
‘He’s really impressed recently. He’s been great, he’s training fine so we hope he will be fit for sunday. Next week both Bailey and Fosu-Mensah Eric will start training.”
Speaking about the Everton game on Sunday, Solksjaer said:
‘We clearly lost the game against Everton last term,’ he admitted.
‘It was more or less a poor performance, but I’ve said many times this season we are more improved now and ready.
