Ripples Nigeria recalls that Pogba is out of contract at the Red Devils this summer.

Asked if Pogba has played his final game for the club, the coach replied: “The doctor told me it will take four weeks minimum for him to recover and the last game is the end of May.

“I don’t think that it is very likely that he will be able to play again.”

Pogba came through United’s academy before joining Juventus in 2012 and returned to Old Trafford for a world-record fee of £89m in 2016.

In his second spell with the club, the 2018 World Cup winner has scored 39 goals in 226 appearances, helping them win the League Cup and Europa League in 2017.
