Ralf Rangnick believes Paul Pogba may have played his last game for Manchester United.
The Frenchman walked off after 10 minutes of United’s 4-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield, with the injury likely putting an end to his tenure at Old Trafford.
Pogba’s contract at Manchester United expires at the end of the season, and he is anticipated to depart as a free agent this summer. Pogba’s injury is expected to keep him out for the remainder of the season, therefore he may have played his last game for United.
“With Paul, it seems from the scan we performed the day before yesterday that he will not play until the conclusion of the season again,” Rangnick stated.
“The doctor informed me it would take at least four weeks for him to recuperate, and the last game is at the end of May,” he continued.
“I don’t believe he’ll be able to play again for a long time.”
Rangnick is another guy who will leave his position this summer, with United confirming Erik ten Hag as the club’s next permanent manager beginning at the conclusion of the season.
Rangnick believes the Dutchman can be a success in the Old Trafford dugout despite the fact that the current Ajax manager will have a lot of work to do to try to turn United’s fortunes around.
“We don’t know each other in person, and we haven’t met in person yet,” Rangnick said.
“However, given what I’ve seen him accomplish at Bayern Munich as the under-23 coach and again at Ajax, I enjoy his play.”
“I am quite optimistic with a complete pre-season, with the opportunity to construct and shape his own staff, as well as a new squad, which is apparent – we will have a new team.”
“I am certain that after a complete pre-season, we will witness a new squad and an improvement on the field.”
“I was aware that Erik was one of the applicants with whom the board met. Obviously, I informed them that, based on what I’d seen and heard from folks who had worked with Erik, I thought he’d be a terrific pick.
“I still think he’s a fantastic pick.” And anything else that we haven’t had time to discuss yet.”
