Pogba using lockdown to prepare for return after injury woes

first_imgPogba had made just eight appearances for United this season before the health crisis forced the suspension of the Premier League in March.The French World Cup winner hasn’t played a single match in 2020 due to his persistent ankle problems.His last appearance came in a December 26 win over Newcastle, but Pogba has been keeping fit during the virus break and hopes to be ready if the Premier League can return in the summer.“I have a little home gym in my house,” Pogba told United’s website.“I can do some training, some running, some bike, go outside and do some things with the ball. I am just keeping busy and keeping healthy.“We have got to stay motivated, there is no other choice. It is a period and we don’t know until when it will be like this, but I still have goals in my head and one day hopefully this (pandemic) will stop.“And then we have to get back on the pitch, so we have to be ready.“For myself, I have been out for a long time as well, so for me I just want to come back playing football.”Pogba, 27, has been in regular contact with his United team-mates during the lockdown as they follow the club’s fitness regime from home.Linked with a move away from fifth-placed United earlier this season, Pogba’s presence would boost their bid for Champions League qualification if matches can be played again eventually.“My advice first of all is to stay safe, stay at home and keep practising,” Pogba said.“There is always a way to work, you can work with anything you have at home, you can still do sit-ups, push-ups.”last_img read more

Mike Sorensen: Utah Jazz: At least pick didn’t get booed

first_img Related All of a sudden we have a little bit of everything going on in the world of sports …It’s probably a good thing the Jazz didn’t invite the fans for draft night at the EnergySolutions Arena like they have in the past. The reaction to the pick of Kosta Koufos would likely have been similar to the reaction at Madison Square Garden when the Knicks chose Italian Danilo Gallinari. Which was similar to the one at my house by my Jazz-fan son when the Jazz chose Koufos …There’s something about unknown big guys with funny names that makes fans wary. Sometimes they work out (Dirk Nowitzki, Manu Ginobli) and sometimes they don’t (Darko Milicic, Niciloz Tskitishvili, Oleksiy Pecherov, Greg Ostertag) …The Jazz brass certainly were excited to get a player projected to be picked as high as 13 or 14 at No. 23. However, the simple fact is, Koufos fell to 23 for a reason or else a bunch of teams would have taken him. You can’t say the Jazz got a lottery player. He’s still a No. 23 pick …I’m not saying Koufos won’t be a good player. He’s been compared favorably by some to Mehmet Okur, so perhaps he can take the Turk’s place in four or five years. By then he’ll only be 23 or 24 …Good for BYU’s Trent Plaisted to get drafted after a lot of folks thought he wouldn’t. I’ll still be surprised if he sticks on Detroit’s roster, but then again I’m still surprised former BYU center Greg Kite lasted for 12 seasons in the NBA …Speaking of Kite, did you know he started 225 games during his career, including all 82 in 1990-91 with Orlando? At least Plaisted is a slightly better free-throw shooter than Kite, who shot an abysmal 48.6 percent from the foul line in his NBA career …Once again, no American male players made it to the second week of Wimbledon. This year was one of the worst ever, however, with only one American male player making it as far as the third round, the worst U.S. showing since 1926. With Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova both eliminated last week, the Williams sisters are on a collision course for the finals, unless they start playing like the American men …How about former Salt Lake pitcher Jered Weaver becoming just the fifth pitcher in Major League history to be the losing pitcher in a no-hitter pitched by his own team. Weaver pitched the first six innings of the Angels 1-0 loss to the Dodgers Friday, but his error contributed to L.A.’s only run in the fifth inning …Just when local fans were getting excited about the Blaze, they go and blow a lead and lose a playoff game at home. While it was disappointing, give Danny White and the Blaze credit for recovering from that awful 0-9 start all the way to hosting a first-round playoff game …Just when local fans are getting excited about Real Salt Lake after five straight games without a loss, the team goes and loses in the worst possible way — an own-goal in the 89th minute to one of the league’s worst teams. At least RSL still has more than three months left on its schedule, unlike the Blaze, who are done for the year …Not that an American has to win the U.S. Women’s Open, but it was too bad to see Stacy Lewis fade badly Sunday with a 78. The winner, in case you didn’t see, was 19-year-old South Korean Inbee Park, not to be confused with Angela Park, a 19-year-old Brazilian-born 19-year-old of Korean descent, who lives in California. She finished in a tie for third place with Lewis and In-Kyung Kim, not to be confused with Mi Hyun Kim, who finished in a tie for sixth, and Song-Hee Kim, who tied for 24th …Who’s the best player on the PGA Tour now that Tiger Woods is out for the season? It’s got to be 47-year-old Kenny Perry, who won for the second time this year at the Buick Open and moved into third place on the FedEx points list. Kenny Perry? Yikes … Finally, for all you diehard college football fans, the season begins exactly two months from today for BYU, Utah and Utah State (Weber State starts two days earlier), with training camps a little more than a month away.
