The French midfielder limped off in the first half of Manchester United’s Champions League opener against Basel last week after suffering a hamstring strain.
It has not yet been confirmed how long Pogba will be out of action for as Manchester United look to continue their strong start to the season against Southampton in the Premier League this weekend.
However, former Manchester United defender Ferdinand has admitted his disappointment at the injury setback for the midfielder and said it came just at a time when Pogba was building momentum.
Speaking on BT Sport, Ferdinand said: “It’s frustrating for Pogba. He wants to prove his worth to the team.
“He started the season with the bite between his teeth. He was taking control of games. He scored a couple of goals and made a couple of assists.
“The key word is ‘momentum’. He was just starting to gather a bit of that but it’s been taken away from him.”
Manchester United are currently joint top of the Premier League table after having won four of their opening five games.
The Red Devils, who were 4-0 winners over Everton at Old Trafford last weekend, take on Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday as they look to continue their strong start to the new campaign.
Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League but won both the League Cup and Europa League in Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge last term.
