Manchester United BLOW! Paul Pogba could be out for ‘a few weeks’ with hamstring injury, says Jose Mourinho

Paul Pogba's first Champions League game with Manchester United ended after just 19 minutes

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Jose Mourinho fears Paul Pogba will miss a "few weeks" with the hamstring injury that took the gloss off Manchester United's straightforward return to the Champions League.

Tuesday's Old Trafford encounter with FC Basel ended their 644-day absence from European football's top table and it was as comfortable a reintroduction as they could have hoped for - running out 3-0 winners.

Substitute Marouane Fellaini headed United into a deserved first-half lead and compatriot Romelu Lukaku followed suit early in the second period with his first goal in the Champions League group stage.

Marcus Rashford came off the bench to net his first goal in the competition and wrap up a great win for the hosts - but fears over Pogba fitness put a dampener on United’s evening.

The France star led United out as captain for the first time, but his game was brought to an halt inside 19 minutes, with the 24-year-old reportedly seen leaving Old Trafford on crutches.

"I don't know [what the severity of his problem is]," Mourinho told MUTV. "I just know from experience it's a muscular injury.

"In my experience, muscular injury stops you from playing for a few weeks, I think.

"It looks for me too [like a hamstring injury] but I haven't spoken yet to the medical department.

"Squads are for this, squads are for injuries, squads are for suspensions. We don't cry with injuries.

"So if no Paul for Sunday, we have [Ander] Herrera, we have [Michael] Carrick, we have Fellaini and we have [Nemanja] Matic."
