Manchester United star Paul Pogba’s love for some real life NBA action has been put on hold by club’s upper echelons as the ace midfielder has been banned from playing basketball till the time he is fully fit. At a time where your best player is missing out important games due to being sidelined, the least you expect from him is that he regains fitness through resting by taking a break from the tight training regimes he goes through. Keeping everything in check, Man Utd medical staff has given a straight no to their midfielder from playing basketball as the 24-year-old star has been seen often ‘chilling’ in the form of dunking out his frustration for being sidelined by playing his second love in sports, which is basketball. Making sense to the ban Pogba has been hampered by United, the medical staff is right in keeping the player from playing the sport as they are stressing on the fact that the sport puts his ankles and hamstrings in threat.

As per reports, the news first emerged through The Sun which reveals the former Juventus players’ “habit of slam dunking outside of team training is believed to have contributed to the serious hamstring injury” and “Pogba’s use of a personal trainer who is not aligned to the Old Trafford staff has also led to concern about the suitability of his fitness regime away from the club.”

While on the other hand Pogba is teasing his injury updates on Instagram, where he can be seen completing typical ‘Bruce Lee’ style exercises at the club’s training base in Carrington. Speaking about Pogba’s injury club manager Jose Mourniho said, “His injury is not one that I can have the hope like I can have with others”. After the international break, the Red Devils will be back in some Premier League action when they will go one on one against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at Anfield.
