Paul Pogba's Manchester United Career Is Over, He's Played His Final Game
| Last updated
The Frenchman was immediately made a major doubt for upcoming games against Arsenal and Chelsea.
But now, in Friday's press conference, Rangnick has ruled Pogba out of United's remaining games as the doctor believes he will be sidelined for four weeks.
"The doctor told me it will take four weeks minimum for him to recover and the last game is at the end of May," Rangnick told the media.
"I don't think it is very likely he will play again."

It seems as though the very brief outing at Anfield will be Pogba's last in a United shirt, with his contract expiring in the summer.
As soon as Pogba was substituted for Jesse Lingard, Gary Neville, on co-commentary, said, "That could be Paul Pogba's last minutes in a Manchester United shirt, if that injury lasts for a few weeks."
It was recently reported that Pogba is extremely unlikely to put pen to paper on a new deal.
The treatment he received from his own fans in the 3-2 win of Norwich, where he was jeered by sections of the United faithful at Old Trafford, is said to be the final straw for Pogba.
As well as the booing when he was taken off, the World Cup winner was also subjected to chants of "f*** off" from United supporters.
He responded by cupping his ears to them at full-time as he headed back down the tunnel in what looks to be his final gesture at the Theatre of Dreams.
Pogba has played 229 times and scoring 39 goals for United in his second spell following on from his £89 million switch from Juventus in 2016.
He won the Carabao Cup and Europa League in his first season.
