Robin van Persie claims Paul Pogba’s injury is “mysterious” after he pulled out of Manchester United’s trip to Arsenal.
Pogba only returned to action after a long lay-off last month and prior to United’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed he had suffered a setback.

Solskjaer has since revealed that the World Cup winner will be out of action for three or four weeks as he undergoes ankle surgery.
The Norwegian is reportedly frustrated with Pogba’s antics and Rio Ferdinand backed him up prior to the Arsenal clash.
Ferdinand said on BT Sport: “I think Ole is just reacting to what’s happening around the player.
“I think injuries have played their part and it’s frustrating because he’s a talented player, and he’s a superstar and he came for big money.
“I think he’s injured. He went and managed a charity game two days ago so they obviously knew – two days ago minimum – that he has an injury and he won’t be able to play in this game.
“And now he’s confirmed it will probably be four, five or six games.”
But Van Persie added: “It’s all a bit mysterious to me. It’s not full answers. It’s a little bit of a grey area.
“I think it’s important that Paul speak out himself and really says what he feels inside his body. Does he want to stay or does he want to go?”
Ferdinand then criticised Raiola’s decision to speak out recently.
The agent suggested he would not let another player move to United in the future and the Old Trafford club are said to be growing frustrated at how he is acting.
And Ferdinand commented: “If I was someone sitting there advising Paul, I would say, “Go and speak out. You’re your own man. Your voice is going to be heard the loudest. Don’t let your agent speak. Shut your agent down”.
“You speak and add some clarity to this situation so your fans know where you’re at, your team-mates know where you’re at, and your club, your manager, the people who are important know where you are.”
