“It’s an injury that will take a few weeks to heal,” Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told MUTV, the club’s TV channel, on Monday.
“He’s just started his recovery, working with the medical staff and we’ll get him back as soon and as safely as we can. Of course, Paul has been very important for us and we’re not going to take any risks. [So it is] A few weeks definitely,” he added.
The 27-year-old midfielder is expected to miss an FA Cup fifth-round game against West Ham United as well as Europa League matches against Real Sociedad later this month.
