United Set To Make Big Decision On Paul Pogba After Hamstring Injury

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly told France worldwide Paul Pogba to take a break.

The extent of Pogba's injury, therefore, is still very much unknown.

Manchester United return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they take on CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation.

And ESPN claim the lack of uncertainty surrounding Pogba's injury is because they are yet to decide if he needs surgery.

The report also added that the club has been in touch with Finnish muscle fix specialist Sakari Orava, with a decision set to be made about the necessity of a surgery.

"His injury is a little different to Dembele, so Pogba can heal without surgery", Dr Orava told Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat.

"So I'm not going to cry or be counting the days until Pogba comes back, not at all".

Mourinho claimed he will have to rely on his squad, and that's not something he will be too anxious about doing, with the middle of the park having particular strength in depth. Sure, Pogba is one of the world's most elite players, and obviously a huge difference maker, but the Red Devils have plenty of quality at the position.

As noted in the report, manager Jose Mourinho acknowledged he was unsure as to when Pogba would return, suggesting recovery could take "12 weeks or 12 days".

"I have no idea when he [Pogba] will be back, no idea, but again, this is a great opportunity for other players to play and I trust them all. Until he's back, I trust my players".
