Jose Mourinho has again revealed that he does not know when Paul Pogba will return to the Manchester United line-up.
The 24-year-old France international midfielder has not been seen since suffering a hamstring injury on 12th September and he has already missed the Red Devils’ last 10 games in all competitions.
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.
Mourinho revealed at the time that Pogba was facing a long-term lay-off and, despite encouraging progress reports over the past month, the Portuguese tactician is still unsure when he will be available for selection.
When asked if he could play ahead of next month’s international break, he said: “Again, 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.
“For example, Marcos Rojo is working with me, with certain conditions, and I would expect him to be ready to play after the international break. I can predict that. But Paul, I have no idea.”
It means Pogba will definitely miss United’s next game against Benfica in the Champions League at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening which they are 7/20 to win.
The Portuguese outfit are priced at 10/1 and the draw is available at 17/4 with Bet365.
