Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Paul Pogba will miss Manchester United’s game against Everton, but the self-proclaimed Special One refused to confirm how long the 24-year-old will be out of action for.
The 24-year-old picked up the injury during the Red Devils’ first Champions League game in almost two years, where they ran out 3-0 winners against a poor FC Basel side.
However, the injury to one of our most influential players was a huge blow – and if we’re without him for any sort of prolonged period of time, it’ll only have a negative impact on the team.

Pogba is a player who has been right at the heart of everything that has been good about our play over the last four or five matches. Now, Mourinho and his coaching staff will have to figure out a gameplan that is capable of securing victories without the £89million midfielder.
Of course, that isn’t going to be easy. However, as the self-proclaimed Special One says, it is a good opportunity for others to come in and prove their worth. The season is long and injuries will happen, that is why you have a squad – and I’m sure we’ll cope adequately because Mourinho is the master at game planning.
