Paul Pogba is looking set for his Manchester United return after starting his rehabilitation despite undergoing ankle surgery just on Tuesday, MySportDab reports.
The France Star did undergo surgery earlier this week after picking up a fresh ankle injury shortly after returning from a different injury problem.
Just a day later, Pogba is seen taking the first steps on the path to recovery after being put through a series of exercises.
Wearing a Valencia jersey, the 26-year-old is shown having his ankle worked on by a physio using different techniques before completing some press-ups with his young son closeby.
“No time to waste, back again”: The clips were captaioned that and uploaded to Pogba’s Instagram account.
Pogba and Kondogbia whose Valencia jersey he wore, are close friends, the pair have known each other for a very long time.
MySportDab can confirm they were roommates in 2013 at the Under-20 World Cup, hosted in Turkey, when France won the tournament.
However, Kondogbia never played a competitive game for the France senior team and switched his international allegiance in 2018 to the Central African Republic.
26-year-old Kondogbia has previously said: “Paul is more like a brother to me.”
Pogba is set for a month on the sidelines and Solskjaer confirmed this just days into the new year because that it was a new ankle issue.
“Paul was back after a very long spell out, played in two matches, suffered a reaction, and couldn’t face Burnley.
“He felt his ankle got worse, so there was a scan, it’s a different new injury.”
With Pogba and Scott McTominay both injured, United are planning to strengthen in midfield and have now shown interest in Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
