Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has fully backed Paul Pogba to get back to top form despite his contract expiring at the end of the season.

Rangnick has revealed he plans to select Pogba once he recovers from his thigh injury, citing that Pogba will be motivated to show off to both the United fans and any interest parties that are keen on his services.

Pogba has returned to training and could make his return as soon as February 4th, when they face Middlesbrough in the FA Cup fourth round.

“For me, it’s not a question if a player has an expiring contract, the question is how much does he still want to be a part of this group, how much does he still feel emotionally and physically on board,” Rangnick told a news conference on Tuesday.

“As long as this is the case, why shouldn’t Paul Pogba now after two and half months of injury, fully fit again now and he also wants to show up.

“He wants to show the fans of Manchester United, the board, the whole world what kind of player he can be and even if it’s only to show enough for a new contract elsewhere, he will be highly motivated to do that and why should I then not play him?

“By the way, my contract as a manager is also expiring in the summer.

“For us, we have the same goal. We have the same ambition to be as successful as we can possibly be in the next three or four months.

“But as I said, there is a difference of how players deal with their current situation.

“How do they handle that? If they handle that in a professional way, an ambitious way, of course I will play players although they have a contract expiring in the summer.”
