Mathias now working on his endurance ahead of return to full training
Steve Davis says he is pleased with the progress being made by last season’s leading goalscorer Mathias Pogba as he battles back from a serious knee injury. The club’s Guinean international has not featured this season after being on the receiving end of a hefty challenge by then then Manchester United defender Scott Wootton in pre-season.
Pogba underwent surgery on his cartilage in the summer but is now running again and working on re-building the muscle.
Steve Davis told Crewe’s official web-site: “Mathias is making really good progress and has been the perfect professional in his rehabilitation. He works hard every day.
“He now has to work on his endurance and fitness levels because he has missed nearly four months of football now. It is just a time thing with him.
“Then it will just be a case of him playing one or two games. These could be practice games in training or we may re-introduce him through some Under-21 games. We won’t rush him back now and will make sure he is 100% because we need for the second half of the season. “
