“It’s strange, hard to explain” – Pogba speaks on Covid-19 experience

France and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has narrated his experience while recovering from Covid-19.

Pogba was diagnosed with Covid-19 on August 27, which forced him to spend 10 days in quarantine before returning to full training with United.

He was then named in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI for their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on September 19.

According to Pogba, it took him a “long time” to recover physically from coronavirus and that he “couldn’t run” during the first game of the season.

He suffered an alarming dip in form and hasn’t had a regular spot in Solskjaer’s line up since giving away the penalty which gave Arsenal a 1-0 win at Old Trafford on November 1.

But Pogba says he finally felt like himself again during the Red Devils’ Premier League clash at West Ham on Saturday December 5, where he scored a stunning second-half equalizer giving Manchester United 3-1 victory.

According to Pogba, the disease affected his ability to perform.

“It’s strange, it’s hard to explain because you wouldn’t understand. Even in training, I would say to the fitness coach that I feel strange. It’s not me,” He told United’s official website.

“I get tired very fast and I’m out of breath really fast. The first game of the season, I couldn’t run. I was trying.

“I spoke with the manager, ‘I will start the game and let’s see,’ but I was very out of breath and it took me a long time to get me back to my fitness and to get back physically good.”
