Paul Pogba Decision on Hamstring Injury Surgery Reportedly Could Come Next Week


Jose Mourinho and Manchester United are mulling over the prospect of having to send Paul Pogba to Finland for surgery on the hamstring injury he picked up against Basel.

Manchester United wants Pogba to return in the best possible form, and according to The Sun, the club has told him to go on a 10-day vacation before returning to work on his injury.

Pogba has been sidelined since September 12 after suffering the muscle problem during the 3-0 win over Basel in the Champions League.

Initial reports claimed that Pogba could miss up to six weeks of action, but Jose Mourinho has stressed that the exact severity of the 24-year-old's injury is still unknown. Get the app and get the game.

Surgeon Sakari Orava, who has in the past monitored Pogba, and is also helping the recovery of Barcelona star winger Ousmane Dembele, has spoken on the issue.

The Security Council was aware of the crippling effect of the textile export ban. "But sanctions are not the panacea", Wang said. The industry that took hold in the 1970s offers thousands of jobs to a largely poor population and helps close a trade deficit.

Orava stated: "His injury is a little different to Dembele because he can heal without surgery".

Mourinho could hand a first league start to Michael Carrick or bring in Spaniard Ander Herrera in the lineup should he choose to play a three-man midfield at St Mary's.

The Red Devils will then return to Premier League action against Crystal Palace, before travelling to Anfield to lock horns with bitter rivals Liverpool.

"No idea", Mourinho said when asked when he would make a return. After the final worldwide break of the season, their next game will be Liverpool. "No idea. But, again, it's a great opportunity for other players to play and I trust them all, so I'm not going to cry or be counting the days until Pogba comes back, not at all".

"You're going to lose players during the season, you've got to overcome it".
