Expert: Ralf Rangnick is wrong about Paul Pogba amid 'big' Man United 'hint'
The injured Paul Pogba could play one more time for Man United on the final day of the season.
That is the view of medical expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in injury and data analysis.
Pogba, 29, is expected to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season and is currently sidelined with a calf problem.
As quoted by The Mirror last Saturday (23 April), Ralf Rangnick revealed: “I don’t think it’s very likely that he will be able to play again.”
But the Frenchman took to Instagram later that day to claim that “it is not over” and that he hopes to return before the end of the season.
Pogba’s “hint” and the four-week timeline originally suggested means that the midfielder may have one last outing in United colours, claims Dinnery.

“He hinted he may be back,” he told Football Insider‘s Adam Williams.
“It was a little bit of a strange one from Rangnick because there’s a big chance that he could come back within that timeline.
“He needs to get back up to speed after he returns, of course. But even so, after the Brighton game, they have a 15-day gap.
“I certainly wouldn’t rule him out being involved in game week 38. That is five weeks away so it is well within the timeframe.”
Pogba became the world’s most expensive player when he re-signed for United in August 2016.
The £89.5million man has scored once and contributed nine assists in 27 appearances this term.
