Jose Mourinho speaks out about Paul Pogba's hamstring injury

After winning four of their five EPL games this season Manchester United will look to extend their streak against Southampton on Saturday

The 23-year-old is now on the sidelines after sustaining the injury against Basel in Champions League matchday 1, and will miss important games for the Red Devils - he has already missed games against Everton, Burton Albion and Southampton.

The United boss offered a brief update on Paul Pogba's situation and Mourinho insists he still has no idea when the midfielder will be available for selection again.

The health status of Paul Pogba, who reigned as the world's most expensive player from last summer until the Neymar deal was struck this past summer, is very much in question.

Manchester United return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they take on CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation.

According to Rob Dawson of ESPN FC, "the lack of a concrete timeline for Pogba's comeback is because United are yet to settle on the best course of action".

Finnish surgeon Sakari Orava says he has been consulted by United on the injury, and is waiting on a decision from the club some time in the next week as to whether Pogba will go under the knife.

United were hopeful Pogba's injury would heal without surgery but if there is no sign of progress he will reportedly travel to Finland for an operation. So I'm not going to cry or be counting the days until Pogba comes back.

Ahead of the game, Jose Mourinho has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he's given reporters a team news and injury update.

The Express report Mourinho said: "I have no idea [when he will be back]. When he comes back, welcome, but until then I trust my people".
