Paul Pogba's return to Manchester United The first team was delayed after the French midfielder became ill, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said.

Pogba, 26, has only played six times this season after suffering an ankle injury in September.

Solskjaer is hoping that Pogba will be available before the end of the year, but the latest setback decided on him Wednesday. League Cup quarter-final against League Two side Colchester United at Old Trafford.

Of all the things that hurt him today, Solskjaer told reporters.

He finished two or three days - three days maybe - so that wasn't worth it. That would probably set him back a bit.

We just have to get him fit. He could have been half an hour, 45, 60, 90 minutes - who knows - in the first game. We were trying to get her back, but now she is sick.

United slipped to sixth place in the Premier League after Sunday's 1-1 draw against Everton. But Solskjaer said he admired academy graduate Mason Greenwood, who scored his seventh goal for United in all competitions this season.

Solskjaer said he is considering giving the teen striker run games to see if he can extend his purple patch in front of goal during the festive season.

He was tired of leaving me, United manager said.

I remember when I came to the club and I continued to score some goals, and even though I felt like I could do better, the manager's comments were 'It's hard to keep players score on the team'.

It is very, very difficult now to put a team out there without thinking of my Mason.
