The midfielder’s injury restricted him to eight appearances, so far, this season but he was primed to return to the pitch prior to the halt to proceedings in England. Naturally, Pogba has been as eager as a child at the sight of their favourite toy, to run back out in the red kit of United.

I’ve been frustrated, a long time ago. Now I’m almost there, so I’m just thinking about getting back and training fully with the team and everything,” the 27-year-old said in an official club podcast.

“You think bad, but I’ve never had something like this in my career. So, I always take it in a good way. It makes me more hungry to come back and do well.” The Frenchman suffered a foot injury in August which was further aggravated after he insisted on getting some minutes under his belt.

“I had a cast on it, a plaster-cast, so it went very well but too well. The bone got bigger and so, when I came back again, I played those two games against Watford and Newcastle, I could feel something again. I had to have an operation and now here I am. I don’t feel anything, and, hopefully, I’ll be back very soon,” he declared.
