Paul Pogba chooses Dubai to heal his wounds

Dubai the sweet... Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who was injured in his foot after his match against Southampton last August, was recently spotted in the United Arab Emirates city, which he chose to stay for the duration of his convalescence.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who suffered an ankle injury in his August match against Southampton, preferred Dubai’s skyscrapers to Manchester’s grey weather to heal his wounds. In the midst of a rehabilitation session on the rooftops of Dubai and facing Burj Khalifa, Paul Pogba did not hesitate to share with his Instagram followers his determination to get back into the field quickly: “they say hard work pays off what about hard work in the heat? loving the view though… Allah always in control,” the player said.

 

Absent from the last two matches with Manchester United, Paul Pogba, whose recovery is estimated at 3 weeks, could make his comeback for the “England derby” against Liverpool on 20 October.

Dubai my love

A regular visitor to the United Arab Emirates, Paul Pogba was last seen in the Emirate in May with his friend, Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma, where they were able to visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
