Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba's injury is 'long-term', confirms manager Jose Mourinho

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba's injury is 'long-term', confirms manager Jose Mourinho”

The Spaniard told MUTV: "It is a little bit more than what happened last season with Zlatan scoring most of the goals we try to put some goals in the list this season".

However, just three days later United face Crystal Palace in the league and Mourinho is not happy with the preparation time for the Old Trafford clash.

"Look, without Zlatan we can not rotate the strikers, especially because Marcus Rashford is playing in other positions", said Mourinho.

Mourinho was clearly hinting that he hopes former Everton boss Martinez will consider giving Lukaku a break this week.

"I wouldn't be fair if I wouldn't say that every step in his career with different managers, with different fellow players, with different teams were not contributing to what he is now".

The Belgian made a £75 million move to the Red Devils this summer and has already netted 10 goals, making nine starts and sitting out only the Carabao Cup match against Burton Albion.

Following Saturday's meeting with Crystal Palace, Lukaku will head away on global duty with Belgium, who have already qualified for the 2018 World Cup. "It's Roberto's responsibility", he added.

Manchester United fans" worst fears were realised when their manager, Jose Mourinho, admitted that star midfielder Paul Pogba will be sidelined for the "long-term'.

"He works hard, he rests, he has a great professional life outside the football pitch".

"He's injured, he cannot play tomorrow and it's not an injury that I can have the hope I have with (Antonio) Valencia or (Phil) Jones.I have the hope to see them in training". Long-term injuries I don't speak about them.

"They can always be in finishing areas, in fact I want them to be, so if people like Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial score goals, I think it's just a natural effect of the way we play".
