Paul Pogba hobbles on crutches as he gives injury update

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has issued fans with an update over his fitness via his Instagram stories amid reports he will be out of action until early 2022.

The French international and World Cup winner sustained a thigh injury while training with his national side that could scupper his chances of featuring for the Red Devils over the festive period.

France Football Federation have confirmed the 28-year-old will miss both Saturday’s home game with Kazakhstan and the away clash with Finland on 16 November.

The FFF explained how Pogba was the “victim of an injury to the quadriceps of the right thigh” as United’s injury list continues to grow.
