JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Paul Pogba could be out of action for three months due to his latest injury.

Pogba recently picked up a thigh injury while playing for France, when the 28-year-old midfielder left training limping and missed Les Bleus' last game.

According to Solskjaer, Pogba's injury is quite serious, and the Norwegian coach predicts he will be missing the player for months.

"Yes, I would say that," said Solskjaer when asked if Pogba's injury would keep him out for a long time, as quoted by the Daily Mail on Saturday. "It was a disappointing injury for Paul, certainly a disappointing time for him."

"Of course, I'm not a doctor, but he can't say how fast the injury will heal. Sometimes you expect, hopefully, for six or seven weeks, and the worst case scenario is 10, 11, 12 weeks with a muscle injury like that."

"One thing I'm sure of is that Paul is determined to come back and give his best when he comes back, and he's already started that recovery with a big mentality to come back stronger."

"Hopefully after Christmas we can see it," Solskjaer added.

Pogba's injury comes as a huge blow to Manchester United ahead of their busiest period of the season.

Over the next few days, the Red Devils will face Watford in the Premier League, and Villarreal in the Champions League before traveling to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on 28 November.
