Mourinho has 'fallen out' with Herrera and Pogba

Mourinho has 'fallen out' with Herrera and Pogba”

Juventus star Paul Pogba picked up a hamstring injury during Manchester United's 3-0 win over Basel on Tuesday night.

Mourinho was furious with the midfielder, which led to the pair falling out.

"But Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick are waiting for a chance".

The United manager would only say he expects Pogba, the club's £89 million record signing, to be out for "a few matches".

Speaking after the match against Basel, Mourinho admitted he was unaware of the extent of the injury but stressed that he would not "cry" after Pogba's latest setback.

"Bad decisions, fantasy football, PlayStation football, tricks and when you stopped to play as a team and when you stopped to play seriously I don't like and you gamble a little bit".

"I don't know [the extent]".

"I don't know, I just know that it's a muscular injury", the United boss said.

Pogba missed three games last term with a similar injury - and was given clear instructions by United medical staff to prevent any recurrence. José Mourinho's side will face Everton, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Liverpool in the Premier League plus CSKA Moscow and Benfica in Champions League.

Although not made public at the time, Herrera innocently invited a friend with close ties to Celta Vigo - United's semi-final opponent in the Europa League - to the club's Carrington training ground shortly before their tie.

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".

Mourinho has already said he has a good depth to his squad, with Herrera being one of the players he may have to call upon with Pogba sidelined for a possible eight games.

He added: "So if no Paul for Sunday, we have [Ander] Herrera, we have [Michael] Carrick, we have Fellaini and we have [Nemanja] Matic".
