Two Manchester United Midfielders Out for the Rest of the Season


Manchester United midfielders Paul Pogba and Anderson are out for the rest of the season United boss Ferguson confirmed today.

Paul Pogba has injured his ankle in a recent reserve game earlier this week and will miss the rest of the season whilst Anderson has been battling to recover from a hamstring injury, Ferguson admitted that both will not play again this season.

Sir Alex told the media on Friday -  “Anderson is not going to play again this season and Paul got injured on Monday and he is out for the season.”

To be fair, neither were expected to play a big role over the next four games anyway.

However, the United boss confirmed that Michael Owen is back training and could well have a part to play, if not against Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday, then the following games against Manchester City, Swansea and Sunderland.

Ferguson continued – “I have said time and time again that Michael is a player who can score important goals if you are struggling in a match.

“He has had a hard time with injuries. When he gets them it is usually months.”

Ashley Young has also shaken off a minor knock and is available for the game against Everton on Sunday.
