Jose Mourinho unsure how long midfielder Paul Pogba will miss

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Reportedly Could Make Manchester United Return in November

And Mourinho and his medics believe this made the midfielder far more vulnerable to injury.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is said to be furious with France superstar Paul Pogba, who faces up to six weeks on the sidelines.

In United's return to the Champions League, a 3-0 win over FC Basel on Tuesday, Mourinho had to withdraw captain Paul Pogba after just 19 minutes.

"We know that, for a few matches, I don't know how many, but I expect we are to play without Pogba for a few matches".

Speaking at his weekly press conference to preview Sunday's game at home to Everton, he said: 'Luke Shaw is not injured anymore so it's a question of form, it's a question of option.

"So, for me, it's just simple and objective: he's not playing this weekend".

According to The Mirror, the Special One is "blaming the player himself for ignoring medical advice over what is a long-standing issue."

He missed three games last term with a similar injury - and was given clear instructions by United medical staff to prevent any recurrence.




"I don't know. I don't know that I just it is a muscular injury", he told reporters.

"I don't know if it's the same one".

The France global left Old Trafford on crutches and Mourinho is unsure about his absence beyond Sunday's Premier League clash with Everton.

Fan favourite Herrera, 28, was voted United's player of the season in 2016-17, but he has been conspicuous by his absence in the new campaign, only making his first start of the season in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Stoke City.

"Of course we feel sorry that we lose a player but we are calm and confident, because it is an opportunity for people who are ready to take it".

Pogba, 24, left Old Trafford on crutches - and scans have confirmed United's worst fears. "Sometimes in this country the word legend comes too easily, but that's not the case here".

But fellow defender Marcos Rojo looks like he could be out of action for another two months.
