"Pogba cannot be called up. At the moment, he is in the pits.

"It's not a new injury he's picked up, but a case of finding his feet and fitness again. He's working hard to get to the point where he's ready to play.

"He is working to be available again. At this moment, I cannot tell you when he will return. Maybe in 20 days, I don't know.

"A normal path, coming from [this sort of injury], is very boring because, until the knee settles, it bothers every now and then. He is working, and he is putting all the effort possible. But at the moment, he is not available."

Despite the controversies regarding a 14-point reduction, the Italian coach is happy with the mood within the camp.


We need to improve the plays on the verticals, on the diagonals, we have these plays in our feet,"

Allegri added.

"In this, the team is doing well, but we are far from what we can do.

"There is a good harmony knowing that to make results you have to struggle and respect the opponent a lot."
