Mourinho Offers Worrying Update On Injured Man Utd Star But Defender Set To Return
A frustrated Jose Mourinho admitted he has no idea when Paul Pogba will be fit again but Marcos Rojo looks set to make his long-awaited return from injury
A frustrated Jose Mourinho has admitted he has no idea when Paul Pogba will be fit again but Marcos Rojo looks set to make his long-awaited return from injury, according to the Mirror.
Pogba has been on the sidelines since suffering a serious hamstring injury during United’s Champions League group stage victory over FC Basel on September 12.
The French international spent time recuperating in Miami and he’s been posting regular updates on social media of him working out in the gym at United’s Carrington training base in recent weeks.
It looked like Pogba was close to making his return, however, Mourinho has now confirmed that he still has no idea when his £89m signing is going to be available again as he’s still not even back in training yet.
The Mirror claim Mourinho is infuriated with Pogba after their relationship became strained when the midfielder continually ignored medical advice during his rehabilitation and has taken part in several commercial projects over the past few months.
When asked how much the team have missed Pogba, Mourinho suggested they are doing just fine without him as they’ve won eight out of the ten games the midfielder has missed.
However, the United boss was pleased to offer a more positive update on Rojo as the defender is expected to be available for selection again after the upcoming international break.
The Argentinean international has been out since suffering knee ligament damage back in April but he’s been back in training recently and it seems he’ll be in contention to return to the squad next month.
Mourinho is quoted as saying by the Mirror:
“I have no idea. Honestly. I am not in control of his recovery process. He is not training with me. He is on individual work and when a player is on individual work I cannot predict.
“I would expect Marcos Rojo to return after the international break because he is training with me. But with Paul I have no idea.”
“We won every match except one [without Pogba]. Two? Well, two, so not bad.”
Mourinho is clearly getting frustrated at how long it’s taking for Pogba to get himself fit and I’m sure the United boss will be hoping to have him available after the November international break.
