“I have no idea” - Jose Mourinho hinted he has no idea when Paul Pogba will return to action



Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed Paul Pogba faces a long time on the sidelines after he hinted he has no idea when their club-record signing will return to action from a hamstring injury.
The Frenchman has missed the Red Devil’s last two matches after he limped off midway through the first half of their 3-0 win over FC Basel last week and it has been suggested the 24-year-old could be out of action for as long as two months.
As this is the midfielder’s second hamstring injury in the last six months, Mourinho’s side are not interested in rushing the former Juventus man back and are yet to stick a timeframe on his recovery after initial scan results came back inconclusive.
However, it does not seem likely he will be turning out for the club any time soon after Mourinho revealed he still has no idea how long the club record-signing will be sidelined for.
 “I have no idea,” The Independent quote Mourinho as saying when asked about the extent of Pogba’s injury ahead of Saturday's trip to Southampton. “No idea. But it’s a great opportunity for other players to play and I trust them all.
“I’m not going to cry or be counting the days until Pogba comes back, not at all. When he comes back, welcome, but until then, I trust my people.”
Paul Pogba had made a good start to the season before he got injured, but Manchester United have four goals in two matches in his absence, a first at home for five years.
In hindsight, the Red Devils will be worse off without Pogba. In fact, the club No. 6 has played a direct hand in four goals in as many league appearances this season and is currently the highest rated Premier League player (8.09).
