Pogba Likely To Have Surgery For Hamstring Injury

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United could be handed a further blow with regards to Paul Pogba's hamstring injury, as reports suggest he may yet need surgery.

The France worldwide picked up the problem during the Red Devils' UEFA Champions League clash with Basel.

"A decision will be taken next week (on whether the surgery will go on)".

"His injury is a little different to Dembele, so he could heal without surgery". "This kind of problem is usually a sum of many coincidences and is affected by muscle fatigue as well as rapid stopping and quick turning, with the brain going quicker than the feet", he said.

Asked about Martial, the Manchester United manager said in a press conference: "I see a great improvement in the person, in the moods, in the face and body language".

"I am very pleased with his attitude overall and then it's easier to play well".

"It is a great opportunity for other players to play", the Portuguese was reported as saying by ESPN. So I'm not going to cry or be counting the days until Pogba comes back.

"If we have consecutive matches at Liverpool and Huddersfield, it means later we are going to play them at Old Trafford, so I'm never too anxious about matches at home and away, because the number of matches is going to be the same, unless in the domestic cups, you are always in the cold balls and some clubs are always in the hot balls".

Paul Pogba remains sidelined with the hamstring injury he picked up against FC Basel.

.

The Barcelona star's rehabilitation has been programmed at around three-and-a-half months following surgery, and Manchester United will hope Pogba won't be out almost as long as his France team-mate.

The battle for this season's Premier League title does seem to be one taking place in the city of Manchester, and a quick return for Pogba might just tilt things towards the red half of it.
