RALF RANGNICK has ordered Paul Pogba back to Carrington from Dubai to continue his rehab.
He is still set to be side lined for another two weeks before starting Manchester United training again.
Rangnick said: “We spoke over the phone on Tuesday. He was still in Dubai. He is expected to come back today and then we will get to know each other in person on Sunday. We had a phone call for about 10 to 15 mins.

“He told me theat he is getting better but obviously still not fully fit.
“From what I’ve heard it will take another couple of weeks until he is fit for training again and then, because he has been out for quite some time, it will take another couple of weeks to get him to be match fit.
With Pogba’s contract running out in the summer the French World Cup winner can start talking to clubs on the continent about a possible move abroad in the New Year.
The club have shelved any efforts to get him to sign a new deal and are comfortable now with him leaving on a free although they would definitely listen to any offers in the New Year.
He would be doing better than his two predecessors who struggled to get him to replicate the form he shows for France in a United shirt.
As it stands Rangnick seems quite comfortable with the players he has fit and at his disposal following a confidence boosting 1-0 win in his first Premier League game against Crystal Palace and a first clean sheet at Old Trafford since April.
He was particularly impressed with the first half performance as the players immediately implemented his pressing style.
Rangnick changed his whole squad for the 1-1 midweek Champions League draw against BSC Young Boys with United already qualified for the next stage of the Champions League.
Now he is set to change it back again to the team that faced Palace.
