It’s not over-Paul Pogba replies Ralf Rangnick after the German claims he won’t play for Man United again this season

Manchester United United has claimed on social media his season is not over despite being sidelined with injury.

Paul Pogba was substituted in the 10th minute after suffering a calf injury against Liverpool. further assessment by medical Doctors suggests Pogba will be out for four weeks.

The French international contract at Manchester United will expire this summer and he is set to leave the Old Trafford after six years. The Midfielder has failed to live up to expectations after his record-breaking move to Manchester United.

Ralf Rangnick seemed doubtful about the availability of the French international for the remaining part of the season at a press conference ahead of United’s clash with Arsenal.

What did Ralf Rangnick say?

“He’s injured, he’s a player who won the World Cup with France, he’s such a good player that he was a regular starter for a team like France,” Rangnick said before the defeat at Arsenal. “We all know what kind of potential he has and what kind of good player he can be.

“He was quite like a few other players struggling to get his best performance sustainably on the pitch for a team like Man United. This has not only been the case this season or in the last couple of weeks. As far as I remember it was also the case in earlier years.

“It’s difficult to say [why]. If myself or other coaches knew it would be easier to change that but I don’t know. Right now it doesn’t make sense to think about that because he won’t be available for tomorrow and most likely not for the upcoming games.

“As it seems right now he will not renew his contract and I don’t know, maybe the club or Erik [ten Hag] will not want to renew his contract, I don’t know. It’s most likely he won’t be here anymore next season.”

Pogba’s final act as a United player, according to Rangnick, was to hand Liverpool the opening goal by failing to inform the referee that he was suffering from an injury:

“It was never part of the game plan to stand at the halfway line, even more so since Pogba was already hobbling across the pitch.

“He should have lain down or sat down, but he was trying to hobble behind the referee and tell him he’s injured. We were effectively one player down and still attacking high up.”

What did Pogba post on social media?

“Absolutely gutted to not be able to help the team in today’s game,” the post read. “I will work even harder to come back stronger and hopefully before the end of the season.

“It’s not over. Thank you all for your support, United we stand!”
