Manchester United’s forward, Paul Pogba says he is “hungrier” to succeed after missing most of the 2019/20 season as a result of an injury.
Paul Pogba has not featured in any match since 26 December. He suffered a further setback following an early-season foot problem.
The France International opened up to United’s podcast and said, “frustrated for a long time” but will resume training when the club returns after the coronavirus pandemic.”
“I’m almost there, I’m just thinking about training with the team.”
Pogba has surgery in January and has been limited to a total of eight appearances this season.
“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. It just shows me how much I love football.”
Pogba explains injury lay off
Additionally, Paul Pogba had more problems during rehab while wearing a plaster cast. One of the bones in his foot grew.
The French man explained the details behind his injury problems this season, in an exclusive interview for the club’s official podcast.
He said, “I don’t know if people really know what happened. So, I had a foot injury that came in the game against Southampton. It was early this season and so I carried this for a long time, training and trying to be playing with it. After I stopped, I found I had a fracture.”
“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.”
“So I had to have an operation and now here I am. I don’t feel anything and hopefully, I’ll be back very soon.”
Initially, the Premier League was postponed until 3rd April only for the league to be pushed up to 30th April when it was decided the top flight would only return when “it is safe and appropriate to do so.”
