Mourinho has 'fallen out' with Herrera and Pogba

Mourinho has 'fallen out' with Herrera and Pogba

Steven Gerrard believes Paul Pogba's injury setback is a massive blow to Manchester United despite having options to replace their club-record signing.

Paul Pogba is expected to be out for up to six weeks due to a hamstring injury he sustained against FC Basel on Tuesday night.

Mourinho has also put the complete blame of Pogba's injury on the player himself, as a outcome of not listening to the medical advice over what is a "long-standing issue".

Meanwhile, Mourinho said left-back Luke Shaw had recovered from injury and suggested it was now a "question of form". The weekend match is the only match that I'm thinking about.

"He's not playing this weekend".

And according to The Sun, Mourinho is furious with Pogba, with the United boss blaming the former Juventus man for ignoring medical advice.

The manager said: "We have players waiting for an opportunity because we started the season really well and we had one match per week, so there was no need to rest players and no need for changes". I don't know that I just it is a muscular injury. I just know it's a hamstring problem.

Shaw has not played since suffering ligament damage in a draw with Swansea at the end of April which forced him to miss the end of United's Premier League campaign and the Europa League final win over Ajax.

The France global left Old Trafford on crutches and Mourinho is unsure about his absence beyond Sunday's Premier League clash with Everton.

"We lost important players last season during crucial moments of the season and we were not crying or getting excuses about that".

And the first test without Pogba comes on Sunday when Everton is the visitor to Old Trafford. "Sometimes in this country the word legend comes too easily, but that's not the case here".

However, the Monaco squad played well, and this encouraging performance despite the absence of Lemar may well make them more amenable to an approach in January - with United ready to break the bank to land the player, who was the subject of plenty of transfer attention over the summer from Arsenal and Liverpool.
