Former Juventus star Pogba in trouble due to hamstring injury

Former Juventus star Pogba in trouble due to hamstring injury

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".

Paul Pogba suffered a knock during his side's Champions League victory over Basel and Jose Mourinho confirms he will miss "a few matches" with a hamstring injury.

That would force him to miss France's World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Belarus in early October, which they need to win to guarantee a place at the finals in Russian Federation. Mourinho has used Matic, and the former Juventus man in the central midfield position this season.

"But Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick are waiting for a chance".

Stoke City's Mark Hughes, who battled Mourinho and United to a draw just last weekend, is the only other boss to go undefeated four in a row against him.

Most of the expansion occurred in administrative and support services (+5,200), a subsector which includes employment agencies. Reaching 4.4 percent, the United States' jobless rate rose one-tenth of a percentage point between July and August.


The United manager would only say he expects Pogba, the club's £89 million record signing, to be out for "a few matches".

Speaking after the match against Basel, Mourinho admitted he was unaware of the extent of the injury but stressed that he would not "cry" after Pogba's latest setback.

"I don't think further than that".

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

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.

The idea is that the train could match or exceed the speed of an airliner. The challenge of finding routes involved more than 100 countries.


That will mean United will have to make do without his services for Premier League meetings with Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace.

"That is an opportunity for others and the others are ready to get that opportunity, and to perform", Mourinho said.

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

"He started the season really well, we've had one match per week we've been going with the same players". This is also our way of things. We lost important players last season and we were not crying or getting excuses.

The France worldwide left Old Trafford on crutches and Mourinho is unsure about his absence beyond Sunday's Premier League clash with Everton. Pogba has struck up a friendship with Lemar and has sent him Instagram messages suggesting he is brokering a deal to bring Lemar to Old Trafford.
