United order rest for Pogba

United order rest for Pogba

There are fears Pogba may have also suffered a thigh strain after stretching to make the challenge and United's medics have not been painting a positive picture.

Paul Pogba is expected to be out for up to six weeks due to a hamstring injury he sustained against FC Basel on Tuesday night.

He said today: "I don't know I just know it's a muscular injury and he's out for the weekend match".

Meanwhile, Mourinho said left-back Luke Shaw had recovered from injury and suggested it was now a "question of form".

"I don't think it will affect them that much but it is still a blow because he is a big player for them". "For me, it is simple - he is 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."

"I don't know [the extent]".

"Herrera, Fellaini, Carrick, they are waiting - they are waiting for a real chance to start matches and to play matches from the beginning, and they are ready". The Frenchman was brought off the pitch in the 18th minute of the game after he pulled up, and was later seen leaving Old Trafford on crutches.

"Sometimes in England the word "legend" comes too easy".

"Marcos Rojo is still in the timings of such an important injury, everything went really well, but is not training in a normal session, just parts of it, so he probably has a couple of months".

Last year's player of the season, Ander Herrera, who was thought to be the leading candidate to replace Wayne Rooney as captain, has been merely a spectator from the bench this season.
