Ralf Rangnick has warned that Paul Pogba could be sidelined for at least another month as he rebuilds his match fitness following a thigh injury.

The French midfielder has been rehabilitating in Dubai but spoke to Rangnick on the phone on Tuesday and is due to return to Manchester.

But the Manchester United interim manager warned that Pogba cannot be rushed back into team until he has not only regained full match fitness but got up to speed with Rangnick's way of playing.

Speaking ahead of United's trip to Norwich City on Saturday night, Rangnick said: 'We spoke over the phone on Tuesday and he was still in Dubai. He is expected to come back today and then we get to know each other in person on Sunday.

'We had a telephone call for 10-15 mins he is getting better but obviously still not not fully fit.

'It will take another couple of weeks until he is fit for training again and then of course he has been out for quite some time so I suppose it will take another couple of weeks to get him match fit.

'In the first instance, it is important he gets fully fit in order to be able to train with the rest of the group and then we have to develop him physically and tactically to be also fit to play in the Premier League.'
