Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has spoken about French midfielder Paul Pogba who hasn't played since November last year due to the injury and still is not expected to return until February, as he is yet to play under Rangnick at United. 

According to United's official website, Rangnick said about Pogba: "As far as I know, I was told a week ago, it would be a minimum of at least another four or five weeks before he is fit for training again." 

"I saw him this morning before the training session, he was in the locker room, and I hope he will be back as soon as possible. Right now, he's not been part of the training group and, even if he was back whenever, two, three, or four weeks, it will take some time," Rangnick added.

Rangnick further said: "It's one thing to be training fit but, on the other hand, he needs to be fit for the match and competition in either the Premier League or the Champions League and this will still take some time."

It is pertinent to mention that, Pogba has only six months left of his contract with Man United, and he can leave at the end of the season.
