Paul Pogba Injury Reports are Rubbish, Claims Jose Mourinho



Manchester United looked just fine without Paul Pogba, one of their most important players, today as they trounced Everton 4-0 at home. To be fair, they didn’t kill off the game and run away with it until very very late in the game, and yes the Toffees have been in dreadful this season thus far, but hey a blowout win is a blowout win.

To be at the top of the table, with a +14 goal differential is a great place to be when your £89.3 million midfielder is out with a hamstring injury. How long will he be out? Well, according to United Manager Jose Mourinho, it’s all up in the air.

Numerous outlets have reported that Mourinho will be without the services of Paul Pogba until November.

Mourinho rubbished reports of the 12 weeks timeline.

He told his postgame press conference: “I don’t know if it is 12 weeks or 12 days. Honestly, any comment, any view, any rumour is totally wrong, because we do not know if it is 12 weeks or 12 days.”

“The player was diagnosed initially after the match because of the conditions of the muscle and bleeding, was one more week to wait and see clearly in the scans, and nobody in this club spoke about 12 days or 12 weeks.

“It’s a muscular injury in the hamstring but we have a normal procedure and wait a few more days. It’s completely nonsense information.”
