Manchester United Coach, Jose Mourinho believes Paul Pogba could be out for a “few weeks” after lasting just 18 minutes in Manchester United’s Champions League opener on Tuesday night.
The 24-year-old French midfielder started against Basel as captain but limped off with a suspected hamstring problem in the first half and was reportedly seen leaving Old Trafford on crutches as his team eased to a 3-0 victory.
Goals from substitute Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford made it a comfortable night for Jose Mourinho on the pitch but Pogba’s condition will be a concern with a hectic schedule over the next month.
“I don’t know (what the severity 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.
