Paul Pogba ‘unlikely’ to play for Man Utd again this season after injury scan, says Ralf Rangnick

Paul Pogba is “unlikely” to play for Manchester United again this season, says interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

The France midfielder, 29, is out of contract this summer and came off 10 minutes into Tuesday’s 4-0 defeat by Liverpool with a calf injury.

Pogba is set to be out “four weeks minimum”, with United’s last game of the season at Crystal Palace on 22 May.

“It is very unlikely he will play again until the end of the season,” said Rangnick.

Asked if Pogba has played his final game for the club, the German replied: “The doctor told me it will take four weeks minimum for him to recover and the last game is the end of May.

“I don’t think that it is very likely that he will be able to play again.”

Pogba came through United’s academy before joining Juventus in 2012 and returned to Old Trafford for a world-record fee of £89m in 2016.

In his second spell with the club, the 2018 World Cup winner has scored 39 goals in 226 appearances, helping them win the League Cup and Europa League in 2017.

United have five Premier League games left, beginning with Saturday’s trip to Arsenal, when Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay are likely to return.

Portugal forward Ronaldo, 37, scored a hat-trick in last Saturday’s 3-2 win over Norwich but missed Tuesday’s game at Liverpool following the death of his baby boy.

On Thursday the club announced Ajax coach Erik ten Hag will become United’s permanent manager at the end of the season.

“Obviously I told [the club’s board], at least from what I have seen and known from people who had worked with Erik, that I think he would be a good choice,” said Rangnick, who will move into a consultancy role at Old Trafford.

“I still believe that he is a very good choice.”

Paul Pogba has played his last game for Manchester United after being ruled out for the rest of the season through injury.

Pogba, who is out of contract this summer and yet to sign a new deal, came off early in United’s humiliating 4-0 defeat at arch rivals Liverpool on Tuesday. United interim boss Ralf Rangnick said Pogba will be out of action for at least four weeks, meaning the £89million midfielder is unlikely to pull on the famous red shirt again.

“With the scan, which we had yesterday, it is very unlikely he will play until the end of the season again,” said Rangnick. “The doctor told me that it will take four weeks minimum for him to recover and the last game is at the end of May. So I don’t think it’s very likely he will play again.”

Scott McTominay, who missed the Liverpool defeat, will return for tomorrow’s trip to Arsenal, as will Cristiano Ronaldo, who also missed the game on compassionate leave following the death of his newborn son. Raphael Varane, who also missed the game, is available for selection again.

Pogba’s injury at Anfield came days after the midfielder was on the receiving end of fans’ anger at Old Trafford. United made hard work of beating Norwich 3-2 after supporters staged a protest outside Old Trafford last Saturday, with the poisonous atmosphere carrying over into the stadium.

Pogba was taunted by a section of fans after being subbed with 15 minutes left. There were also ironic cheers as “f*** off Pogba” chants came from the stands, while Pogba drew more ire as he cupped his ears in the direction of supporters as he walked off the pitch at full-time.

DONE? Ralf Rangnick suggests Paul Pogba will not play for Manchester United again due to season-ending injury at Liverpool with no sign of new contract
Question marks remain over the 29-year-old’s future with the Red Devils, given his contract expires this summer and there is no sign of a new deal.

Rangnick has confirmed Pogba’s calf injury is likely to rule him out for the remainder of the season, hinting the midfielder has played his last game for United.

The German said: “With Paul, as it seems after the scan we did the day before yesterday, it is very unlikely he will play until the end of the season again.”

Asked if Pogba has played his final match for the club, Rangnick added: “The doctor told me it will take four weeks minimum for him to recover and the last game is the end of May.

“I don’t think that it is very likely that he will be able to play again.”

Fans recently turned on Pogba during the 3-2 victory over Norwich, booing him off the pitch, and the £90million man responded by cupping his ears at full-time.
