Posted September 30, 2017

But Mourinho bracketed his £89million record signing with cruciate ligament casualties Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo among the players who are now out of his thoughts.

Paul Pogba injured his hamstring Sept 12 in the UEFA Champions League opener vs FC Basel and hasn't played since.

Jose Mourinho compared Paul Pogba's injury lay-off to that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic after confirming the France worldwide is now a "long-term" absentee for Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho has moved to rule out any suggestion that he could be out of action for up to 12 weeks, but it is unclear whether he will be ready for a return after the upcoming worldwide break, with United set to face arch-rivals Liverpool at Anfield on October 14.

"He's injured, he can not play tomorrow". Long-term injuries I don't speak about them - Ibra, Pogba, Rojo, I don't think about these players'.

Trump and Kim have been trading insults and threats . over Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions and each have threatened military action. Since Kim came to power after the death of his father Kim Jong Il in 2011, he has ramped up nuclear and missile weapon tests.

Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia have also come back from injuries, although quicker than expected. "They were out [on Wednesday] and tomorrow some [players] will be out [too]".

"What I am saying is that from all the injuries we have, I hope we can have some players available Saturday".

And Twitter's reaction to the news shows just how important the midfielder is in United's bid to win the Premier League for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
