The France international is currently nursing a hamstring complaint, but he has been able to work on his upper body strength while out of the picture

Paul Pogba remains sidelined at Manchester United, but he is working hard to keep himself in shape.

The France international picked up a hamstring injury in the Red Devils’ Europa League victory over Rostov on March 16.

The knock kept him out of a 3-1 win away at Middlesbrough and prevented him from linking up with his country during the international break.

Mourinho: Ibra can go if he wants

Jose Mourinho has since declared that Pogba is unlikely to return to action against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera suspended and Chris Smalling and Phil Jones picking up knocks while away with England, the Portuguese said: “So we lose four [players] and I think Paul Pogba is also out. So we lose five."

Pogba is, however, working hard at United’s Carrington training base to ensure that he re-enters the fold in the best possible shape.

The 24-year-old still has a point to prove to many this season following his record-breaking £89 million transfer in the summer of 2016.

He has, however, helped the club to Community Shield and EFL Cup success and could add a Europa League medal and a top-four finish in the Premier League to that roll of honour before the season is out.

Mourinho will certainly be hoping to welcome the all-action midfielder back into the fold as soon as possible, with United’s efforts on multiple fronts leaving them with a testing schedule.
