Man United's Jose Mourinho unclear on severity of Paul Pogba injury

Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes talk the position battle of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial and which player has the edge early in the season.

MANCHESTER -- Paul Pogba has been ruled out for "a few matches" by Jose Mourinho but the Manchester United manager has admitted he still does not know the severity of the midfielder's problem.

Pogba left Old Trafford on crutches on Tuesday night after suffering a hamstring injury during the first half of the 3-0 win over Basel in the Champions League.

Sources said after the game that the club feared he could be out through the Liverpool game on Oct. 14, before he had a scan at Carrington on Wednesday.

Mourinho said at his news conference on Friday the injury will rule out the 24-year-old for Everton's visit on Sunday, but he was less clear on how long Pogba would be sidelined.

He said: "I just know that it's a muscular injury, he's out for the weekend match, that's the only match I'm thinking about, I don't think any further than that. He's not playing this weekend. I just know it's a hamstring problem.

"Squads are to try to cope with these kind of situations and we know that in a few situations, I don't know how many, but we are going to play without Pogba for a few matches but we have other players."

It is the second time Pogba has been sidelined with a hamstring injury this year.

The France international, who scored nine goals in 51 appearances last season, had three weeks on the sidelines in March after picking up a similar problem against Rostov in the Europa League round-of-16.

Mourinho added: "We have players and we have players waiting for an opportunity because we start the season really well with one match per week, no need for resting, changes, we were going with the same players but there are good players more than ready to play so honestly we miss Pogba, we need Pogba but we have good players.

"[Ander] Herrera, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Michael] Carrick are waiting for a real chance to start the matches and they are ready so this is also our way of thinking.

"We lost important players last season during crucial moments of the season and we were not crying or getting excuses about that."
