Paul Pogba given unfortunate trait in FIFA 21 update

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been given the unfortunate ‘injury prone’ trait in the latest FIFA 21 update.

The Frenchman missed 10 games this season from February to March due to injury.

He missed the majority of the 2019/20 season with a foot injury, although was ever-present for United post-lockdown.

The 28-year-old has generally been in fine form when available for United this season.

He has three goals in 19 Premier League appearances, including game-winning strikes against Burnley and Fulham.

Pogba made his return from injury last week against AC Milan in the Europa League, scoring the only goal of the game on 48 minutes to seal United’s passage through to the quarter-finals via a 2-1 aggregate scoreline.

He scored just three minutes after he was substituted onto the pitch in place of Marcus Rashford.

Solskjaer told BT Sport after the game that Pogba’s return was a “big boost” for the rest of United’s season.

They currently sit second in the Premier League, 14 points behind leaders Manchester City with eight games to play.

Solskjaer’s side were knocked out of the FA Cup on Sunday at the hands of Leicester City. The Foxes won 3-1 thanks to goals from Kelechi Iheanacho (x2) and Youri Tielemans.

United are in next in action on April 4, when they host Brighton in the Premier League.

They then travel to Spanish side Granada on April 8 for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final encounter.

What has EA addressed in the newest update?

The new update for FIFA 21 – named ‘Title Update 12’ – was released on all consoles on March 19.

It addresses key issues in career mode and Ultimate Team, and updated some kits and boots.
