Manchester United suffer new Paul Pogba setback, as the France international’s return could be further delayed due to illness.
Pogba attended his brother Florentin’s wedding on Friday, having spent time in Dubai at the start of October and Miami last month.
Manchester United face Colchester In the quarter-final of the Football League Cup and Pogba will be left out of the squad.
Solskjaer is publicly refusing to envisage a United without Pogba, though. “As I’ve said so many times, Paul’s a top, top player that we want to see playing his best football at Man United.
“We just need to get him fit and match-fit. It might be half-an-hour, 45, 60, 90 – who knows, [in] he first game. We’re working hard to get him back but now he’s ill.
“We can talk about Paul all day long and it’s games like [Everton], for example, when you’re lacking that one creative pass or ideas maybe. He has that quality that not many midfielders in the world have, so to get him back would be great.”
The game will take place on Wednesday, December 18.
