Pogba likely to have played his last game for Man United, admits Rangnick1 min read
Ralf Rangnick believes Paul Pogba has played his last match for Manchester United.
The 29-year-old came through the Old Trafford youth set-up and returned from a successful stint with Juventus in 2016 for a then world-record fee.
Pogba came off with a calf injury 10 minutes into Tuesday’s meek 4-0 loss at rivals Liverpool, which could prove his final appearance in a United shirt with his contract expiring in the summer.
Rangnick 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 United, Rangnick said: “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.”
Rangnick was speaking the day after United confirmed Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag will become permanent manager at the end of the season.
“I knew that Erik was one of the candidates the board spoke to,” he said.
“Obviously I told them, 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.
“I still believe that he is a very good choice.”
