Manchester United captain, Paul Pogba could be out of action for a “few weeks” after suffering a suspected hamstring injury that took the shine off the team’s successful return to the Champions League, manager Jose Mourinho said.
Pogba who made his debut as the Man U’s captain lasted just 18 minutes of the Champions League Group A game before being forced off by an apparent left hamstring injury, with Fellaini taking his place.
The 24-year-old Frenchman reportedly left Old Trafford on crutches.
United, who missed out on qualification for Europe’s premier club competition last season, coasted to a 3-0 victory on Tuesday, with goals for Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.
Nevertheless, Jose Mourinho had midfield options for the weekend’s Premier League clash with Everton, including Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick, Fellaini and Nemanja Matic.
France will be hoping Pogba is fit in time to play in the crucial World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria on October 7.
