Ole Gunnar Solskjaer issues Paul Pogba return date ahead of West Ham and AC Milan clashes

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club are trying hard to welcome Paul Pogba back from injury in time for the AC Milan clash.

Paul Pogba suffered a hamstring injury in the first half against Everton midway through February.

Since his injury, Man United have won only two Premier League matches against Newcastle United and Manchester City.

And in his absence, Manchester United have played over five draws, hinting that they have missed the World Cup winner’s creativity in the midfield.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Paul Pogba will miss the West Ham clash on Sunday night but could be part of his travelling squad to Milan on Thursday for United’s return Europa League Round of 16 leg.

The first leg ended 1-1 at Old Trafford and Manchester United need to score at least two goals and avoid a defeat at San Diego to proceed to the latter stage of the competition and Solskjaer is hopeful Paul Pogba could boost his side’s chances.

Solskjær told Mirror: “We hoped Paul [Pogba] would play before the international break, but it’s looking like time is running out for that.

“We (Manchester United) are trying to get him fit for the Milan game but we will have to wait and see.”
