Paul Pogba has expressed his frustration at his inability to influence Manchester United’s results as he revealed his comeback to action is still three-and-a-half weeks away.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted last month he does not expect the midfielder to be back before December and Pogba said he would continue to wear a cast for 10 more days before two weeks of rehabilitation.

Pogba, who has missed the club's last seven matches in all competitions, has not played since a 1-1 draw against Arsenal at Old Trafford in the Premier League in September.

"I will still be under plaster for 10 days," Pogba told RMC Sport on Saturday.

"After, I still have two weeks of rehabilitation."

United saw a four-game unbeaten run ended with a 1-0 defeat against Bournemouth on Saturday and club-record signing Pogba said he felt helpless watching his side from the sidelines.

"You train inside, you want to return to help your team but when you are injured it is not easy [psychologically]. The most important thing is to heal properly."
