Doctor treating Paul Pogba gives update on hamstring problem

The France worldwide could undergo surgery on the hamstring injury that forced him off in United's 3-0 Champions League win against Basel on September 12, which would see him face a longer spell out of action. After a struggling period past year where he had to endure the tag of being the most expensive player ever, Pogba started this season very brightly, enjoying attacking freedom in the wake of Nemanja Matic's presence in the United midfield.

And Dr Orava, who operated on Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele's hamstring, has noted that surgery could be an option - but not an imperative - for Pogba.

"A decision will be taken next week (on whether the surgery will go on)".

'His wound is a bit different from Dembele because he can cure without surgery, ' Orava stated, as reported by French publication L'Equipe.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville believes his former side can cope without Paul Pogba, but insists the midfielder will be a big miss.

Natural disaster near North Korea nuclear test site 'occurred naturally'

"This kind of problem is usually a sum of many coincidences and is affected by muscle fatigue as well as rapid stopping and quick turning, with the brain going quicker than the feet".

Neville said: "He's a big miss". Even if it's not going well for him he'll try the next pass.

"He'll probably admit himself that last season he fell below his standards but he started off this season brilliantly". So if no Paul for Sunday, we have [Ander] Herrera, we have [Michael] Carrick, we have [Marouane] Fellaini and we have [Nemanja] Matic. I can not tell you there is a rule about injured players.

United had been hopeful that Pogba would return in time for the Premier League clash with rivals Liverpool on October 14.
