Severity of Paul Pogba’s injury confirmed, he’ll miss some key games: report

Manchester United Football Club could be without their star midfielder Paul Pogba for the next six weeks, the BBC report. The 24-year-old suffered the injury in the Red Devils’ 3-0 victory over FC Basel, with the Frenchman going down in the first half.

Now, Jose Mourinho is going to have to cope without his star man for the foreseeable future. He’ll miss league games against Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace, also possibly a game against Liverpool. On top of that, he’ll be unavailable for the Champions League tie against CSKA Moscow, as well as being injured for the Burton Albion clash next midweek.

Pogba will also miss out on playing for his country over the next international break which also isn’t ideal.

Injuries are a part of football, and that is exactly why you have a squad of players rather than just a starting XI. Mourinho will now have to go to extra lengths to plan for each fixture, particularly due to the fact that Pogba is one of our most creative outlets.

The chances created could well take a severe knock over the next four or five weeks, and this will be a true test of our mettle as the season progresses.
