Jose Mourinho is FURIOUS with Paul Pogba as midfielder faces up to six weeks on the sidelines

The Old Trafford boss and his staff blame the £89m ace for ignoring medical advice over a long-time hamstring problem

Jose Mourinho is absolutely furious at Paul Pogba.

The Man United boss and his staff are blaming the midfielder for ignoring medical advice over his long-standing hamstring issues.

There is no sympathy for  the £89million midfielder over an injury which means he will miss up to six weeks of the season.

Pogba limped out of the 3-0 Champions League win over Basel on Tuesday with a torn hamstring.

He missed three games last season with a similar injury — and was given clear instructions by United medical staff to prevent any recurrence.

But it has emerged Pogba has instead been receiving treatment from a personal trainer.

Rather than following club advice, which he was consistently asked to do, Pogba has undertaken a private training regime.

And Mourinho and his medics believe this made the midfielder far more vulnerable to injury.

In the doghouse

The 24-year-old left Old Trafford on crutches — and scans  have confirmed United’s worst fears.

Pogba spent yesterday hailing the upcoming return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish forward is edging closer to fitness after agreeing a new deal while still out with a knee injury.

Pogba said:  “He is very important to the group and when he is in the team he makes the other sides scared of him as well.

“When they see Zlatan and know we have big players like this, they fear the club.”
