“Paul is part of our plan going forward and Paul knows that. I’ve spoken to him so many times.
“He’s been playing through the pain barrier and he’s been criticised left, right and centre but when he came back for Rochdale, Arsenal he could easily have opted to not try to play them, but he wanted to play.
“He wanted to try to get back, it was too painful so he had that scan but he’s on the way back. He’s mending, he’s recovering.
“He’s been on a few days off working but he’s away from here, and then there’s a picture. When you’re at Man United, you do get pictures, speculation, I don’t have any problem with that at all.”
