FA Cup third round and you're talking about Paul again.

Paul came back after a long spell out, two games, had a reaction, couldn't go to Burnley, felt his ankle was sore, we did a scan.

And it's not the same injury, it's a different injury.

Of course, when you get that scan, we speak to him, you always consult your own medical people as well like I did, when I did my operation.

You want the best second opinion and the advice was to have it done.

It's not a major one and probably, as I said, three or four weeks (out)." 2.

You have people you trust and speak to.

As I said, when I did my injuries, loads of knee operations, I had my people in Norway and Sweden I spoke to and Paul has people he trusts, and that's more important.

So that's more or less it.

And the FA Cup is the next talking subject, all right?

That's as clear as it can be at this point." MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (FILE - APRIL 9, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 3.

VARIOUS OF POGBA PLAYING FOOTBALL AT AN EVENT STORY: The ankle injury on which Paul Pogba requires surgery is a new one, said Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Friday (January 3).

Speaking at a news conference ahead of United's FA Cup clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Solskjaer took a couple of questions on the Frenchman before asking reporters to switch topics.

Pogba has featured in just eight Premier Legaue games this season because of ankle problems. After returning against Watford and Newcastle, he missed United's win over Burnley and their defeat at the hands of Arsenal, and has been linked with a move away from the club.

Solskjaer told reporters that Pogba was likely to miss three to four more weeks.
