Cape Town - Manchester United star Paul Pogba will
remain sidelined when Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford as Tottenham
Hotspur boss on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old has not featured since September due to an ankle
injury and returned to the north-west at the end of last week after a
spell of rehabilitation in Miami.
But Pogba will not be fit for Wednesday's reunion with former United
boss Mourinho, who the World Cup winner regularly clashed with towards
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "No. Paul's not ready, no.
"He's still a bit away but he's working hard so let's see. He's out on the grass, so let's see how long it will take."
United looked light in midfield at the start of the season and that issue has been compounded by injuries.
In addition to Pogba, influential midfielder Scott McTominay has
missed United's last three matches with an ankle issue and Nemanja Matic
has not been seen for two months.
"They're touch and go," Solskjaer said. "So let's get this training
session out of the way. We've got more games than this one, so of course
I can't look at just the one game, we have got to look at long-term."
