“Right now, it’s about him getting fit again, getting training fit, not to say match fit,” he said to the club’s official website.
“I think this will take, as far as I know, another couple of weeks and until then my full focus is on the players who are available and with whom I can play the next upcoming games.”Read Also: Manchester United Website Crashes After Club Confirm Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer
Pogba has been out of action since picking up the injury while training with his national team back in November and has not played since the German replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in charge of the club earlier this month.
Out of contract in the summer, Rangnick has previously revealed talks have been held as to the 28-year-old’s future, though there is currently no news regarding a potential contract extension.
