- Jose Mourinho has played down media reports that Pogba will be out for 3 months
- The Frenchman suffered a hamstring injury in United's tie against Basel
- Mourinho has now confirmed that no one really know when Pogba will return
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has rubbished reports indicating that Frenchman Paul Pogba could be out of action for the next three months after picking up a hamstring injury.
Pogba was forced out of Manchester United Champions League tie against Basel, and there were reports after the encounter that the former Juventus man would be out for three months.
The fear is if Paul Pogba would be out for three months, then the Frenchman will miss many Champions League games and also Premier League ties.
‘'I don’t know if it is 12 weeks or 12 days, honestly. So any comment, any new rumor is totally wrong because we do not know if it is 12 weeks or 12 days.
‘'The player was diagnosed initially after the match because of the conditions of the muscle and the bleeding, the decision was one more week to wait and to see really clearly in the scans the dimension of the injury and nobody in this club spoke about 12 days or 12 weeks, not at all.
‘'It’s a muscular injury in the hamstring but we have a normal procedure and wait a few more days. So it’s completely nonsense information,'' the former Chelsea handler explained.
