France head coach Didier Deschamps says Paul Pogba “will do everything to recover as quickly as possible” ahead of the upcoming World Cup, but accepts time is not on the midfielder’s side.
Pogba underwent external meniscus surgery in early September and is not expected to be back on the field for another six weeks.
This puts the 29-year-old’s World Cup place in serious doubt, with the tournament in Qatar just over two months away.
But Deschamps has no doubt Pogba will do all he can to recover in time, telling Telefoot: “I know Paul well, he will do everything to recover as quickly as possible and be with us in November.
“But the timing is short. He will come provided he is fit and in competitive mode.”
