Speaking about Paul Pogba’s situation as he nears the end of his Man United contract, Ralf Rangnick said: “He’s injured, he’s a player who won the World Cup with France, he’s such a good player that he was a regular starter for a team like France.
“We all know what kind of potential he has and what kind of good player he can be. He was quite like a few other players struggling to get his best performance sustainably on the pitch for a team like Man United.
“This has not only been the case this season or in the last couple of weeks. As far as I remember it was also the case in earlier years.
“It’s difficult to say [why]. If myself or other coaches knew it would be easier to change that but I don’t know. Right now it doesn’t make sense to think about that because he won’t be available for tomorrow and most likely not for the upcoming games.
“As it seems right now he will not renew his contract and I don’t know, maybe the club or Erik [ten Hag] will not want to renew his contract, I don’t know. It’s most likely he won’t be here anymore next season.”
The Frenchman is out for the rest of the season after suffering a calf injury against Liverpool and it seems that he has played his final game for the Red Devils.
