"The player was diagnosed initially after the match because of the conditions of the muscle and bleeding, was one more week to wait and see clearly in the scans, and nobody in this club spoke about 12 days or 12 weeks. "It's a muscular injury in the hamstring but we have a normal procedure and wait a few more days. It's completely nonsense information." Pogba is set to miss the League Cup tie against Burton Albion on Wednesday and is unlikely to be fit to face Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday. United also have games against CSKA Moscow and Crystal Palace before the next international break.
Their first game back after the break is against Liverpool at Anfield in what will be United's first test against another top-six side.
