Mourinho confirms Paul Pogba will miss 'a few matches' with hamstring injury

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Reportedly Could Make Manchester United Return in November

Marouane Fellaini opened the scoring for United in the first half after coming on for the injured Paul Pogba, while his compatriot Romelu Lukaku continued his fine goalscoring form in the second half.

Per Wheeler, Herrera "innocently invited a friend with close links to Celta Vigo to [training ground] Carrington" before United faced the Spanish side in the UEFA Europa League and consequently received a "dressing down" from manager Jose Mourinho.

"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".

Mourinho also revealed that Luke Shaw has recovered from a foot injury, though he expects Marcos Rojo to remain sidelined for a "couple of months".

"After 2-0 I think everything changed and we stopped to play, stopped to think, stopped to play seriously, ' Mourinho said, as quoted by the Daily Mail".


According to The Sun, however, Mourinho has had little sympathy for the club's record signing, who reportedly ignored instructions from United's medical staff on how to deal with his long-standing hamstring problem. I just know from experience it's a muscular injury.

But Liverpool legend Gerrard insists Pogba's hamstring problem is bad news for Manchester United despite having capable options to fill the Frenchman's void in the starting line-up.

"But there are good players more than ready to play, so, honestly, we miss Pogba, we need Pogba, but we have good players".

"That is an opportunity for others and the others are ready to get that opportunity, and to perform", Mourinho said. Herrera, Fellaini, Carrick, they are waiting for a real chance to start matches. We lost important players last season and we were not crying or getting excuses. The Red Devils are aiming to maintain their fine start to the season as club legend Wayne Rooney returns to Old Trafford.

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