Liverpool "luckier" than Manchester United - Mourinho

Adjust Comment Print

Jose Mourinho has finally admitted Paul Pogba's injury absence will be "long-term" amid fears the Manchester United star could be out until after the November global break.

Man Utd easily hurdled what could have been a tricky obstacle on Wednesday evening as they hammered CSKA Moscow 4-1 in Russian Federation.

"As a footballer you want to win trophies and be part of a successful team and for me Manchester United is that club. We never miss the players that are injured, that's our way of seeing", Mourinho told British media.

"That's our way of seeing [it]".

"I have the hope to see them in training. So I think it's normal, a little bit of relaxation".

"Without Zlatan, we can not rotate the striker, especially because Rashford is playing also in other positions", said Mourinho.

Like Young, it is believed Blind will be back at Old Trafford next term.

As Mourinho is alluding to, the Red Devils have certainly played better football this season and their comfort against Palace has provoked some sloppy play in midfield.

Whether it will earn him a second Premier League start of the season against Crystal Palace tomorrow is another matter.

Frenchman Paul Pogba is the latest to join United's long-term injury list with a hamstring problem.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in 46 appearances for the club last season, but injured his knee ligament in the 2-1 Europa League win over Anderlecht in May.

If Pogba will not be fit until November, he will miss United's trip to Anfield on October 14th in addition to both Champions League matches against Benfica. I need some people with maturity, I need some people with the concept of team, I know that the new generations are more individual because this is the way the entourage and society makes them.
