Great Injury Boost For Manchester United As Paul Pogba’s Return Date From Injury Is Fixed

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho can breathe a sigh of relief as he’s finally got to hear when his star midfielder Paul Pogba would return from injury. According to the Mirror, the French midfielder will make his long-awaited return against Newcastle United on November 18.

Not just Mourinho but the entire United fan fraternity has been waiting with bated breath as to when Pogba will come back. The midfielder has missed 12 games for United since hobbling off during the early stages of the 3-0 win over FC Basel in the Champions League.

Most of his recuperation was with a private medical team in the United States and Mourinho was coy about his date of return. However, the gaffer did mention after the Chelsea game that Paul was making good progress.

According to Mirror’s David McDonnell, the player will be integrated with the squad for full training next week. And it is expected that Pogba will be included in the squad for the clash with the Magpies.

Although Mourinho would love to have him back, even he would admit the perils of rushing the Frenchman back to the first-team action. No doubt that he is an important part of the Red Devils, but the pressure will be on Pogba to deliver as soon as he returns. And, Mourinho would do well to protect him before handing him a starting place.

If ever there is a great time for Pogba to come back from injury, it is this. On the horizon for United, are matches with Newcastle, Brighton, and Watford in the Premier League along with a trip to Basel.

Although all the three sides – Newcastle, Brighton, and Watford, have packed a punch in the Premier League, they still aren’t in the top-four league, which means the pressure will be slightly lesser. Same goes for Basel!

These matches should prepare Pogba for the vital clashes in the month of December against Arsenal and Manchester City. With the Red Devils already 8 points behind City in the title race, these clashes could potentially decide our chances in the title race.
