Paul Pogba said he was “gutted” to watch Manchester United lose to Bournemouth as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.
The midfielder watched the 1-0 defeat at home while he is still sidelined with an injury which has seen him miss United’s last seven games in all competitions.
He is still wearing a cast and hopes it will be removed in the next 10 days which should enable him to return to action in December but for the meantime he is having to watch his team from afar.
Pogba FaceTimed RMC Sport on Saturday after Josh King’s first half goal gave Eddie Howe’s side victory at the Vitality Stadium to give an update on his injury.
Speaking after the defeat to Bournemouth he said: “I’m gutted. To see the team lose without being able to play is the worst. I would like to be back to help them but the most important thing is to heal.”
Harry Maguire also spoke of his frustrations following the defeat and suggested the tough run of fixtures was taking its toll on the team.
“Of course it’s a setback. It’s a defeat, we don’t like defeats,” the defender told MUTV. “Wherever we play, we go to play for three points. It’s disappointing.
“The four away games in 11 days, or whatever it is, is tough for the boys. But no excuses we felt good physically, we felt good mentally. We were going in with confidence. We’ve got to now get our heads down and we look forward to Thursday and then another big game before the international break where we must bounce back.”
