Man United's Pogba out long term with injury, says Mourinho

Man United's Pogba out long term with injury, says Mourinho

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba's hamstring injury will keep him out "long term", says manager Jose Mourinho.

United manager Mourinho had previously refused to comment on those reports and claimed he had not even asked for an update about Pogba's status.

Paul Pogba was seen limping off the pitch in the 19th minute during Manchester United's UEFA Champions League opener against Basel.

Mourinho has remained notably coy on just how much time Pogba could miss, with the France worldwide already sidelined for the victories over Everton, Burton Albion, Southampton and CSKA Moscow.

"He cannot play tomorrow and it's not an injury that I can have the hope like I can have with Jones or Antonio Valencia".

However, Mourinho likened the midfielder to other injured stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo, and he has been unable to put a timeframe on his return.

"And we have to play tomorrow so mentality is very important".

"With [Valencia and Jones], I have the hope to see them training and to have a positive answer".

Pogba, Rojo and Ibrahimovic are joined on the sidelines by Michael Carrick, while Jones and Valencia are to be assessed having missed the midweek Champions League match at CSKA Moscow.
