Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has questioned the club’s decision to send midfielder Paul Pogba to Dubai to recover from his injury.
Pogba sustained a thigh injury while on international duty with France national team in November.
Man United responded by sending Pogba to a warm-weather training camp in Dubai to aid his recovery.
The decision to send Pogba to Dubai was sanctioned when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in charge of the club as head coach before Rangnick’s arrival.
“My former clubs were always trying to make sure the rehab should take place in the club itself,” Rangnick said during his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Man United’s Premier League tie with Norwich City on Saturday.
“As far as I can tell, the medical department is really good, very good, with many different approaches towards rehab.
“I wouldn’t want players to do their rehab abroad or anywhere else, but the decision on Paul was taken before I came.
“In the future, I’ve already spoken to the medical department – to Steve [McNally] our doctor, to (head of physiotherapy) Robin Sadler – that in the future I want players with injuries – and hopefully we don’t get long-term injuries – but if we have them in the future I want them to stay here.”
