Some Manchester United fans were fuming after the Athletic reported Paul Pogba is expected to return to training on Tuesday.
Sources told the sports journalism website Pogba has made massive progress in his injury recovery and has been undergoing personal sessions with club legend Michael Carrick to prove his fitness levels.
The French World Cup winner has played in 150 games and scored 31 goals for the Red Devils since rejoining in the 2016 summer transfer window. However, Pogba has only featured in 7 Premier League matches due to long-term ankle problems (Transfermarkt, where he is also valued at £90m).
Despite the league being suspended in light of recent events, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are set to report for first-team training at Carrington, although it is currently unclear when United will play next.
Who's going to be a better player for Man Utd?
Understandably several supporters are angry the midfield maestro is only fit to return at a time when the English top-flight faces an uncertain future. One fan commented they have had “enough of his nonsense.”
Have a look at some of the angriest reactions we have found…
We aren’t playing for the foreseeable future, Pogbas always been about himself, guessing he’s trying to get playing time to engineer a move at seasons end. Pogba doesn’t want to play for United
