Midfielder raises concerns over Paul Pogba injury

Mkhitaryan suggests Paul Pogba's injury is a big disappointment for their ongoing in-form season.


Manchester United attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has proposed that it will be difficult for the Red Devils to adapt without Paul Pogba in the starting XI.

The French midfielder endured a hamstring strain in their 3-0 Champions League triumph against Basel one week ago and the midfielder is presently all set to be sidelined for an undisclosed time, till the best possible evaluations are executed.

Pogba is said to be straying for no less than one month, but many reports have also asserted that it can be up to three months which manager Jose Mourinho has totally denied.

The Red Devils beat Everton 4-0 a week ago with Marouane Fellaini in the place of Pogba and a midfield partnership of Carrick and Herrera against Burton Albion in The Carabo Cup. All the midfielders delivered a decent show from the limited chances they got till now, however, Mkhitaryan has now said the club would miss Pogba’s creativeness that has empowered them to create such successful execution.

“It’s hard, because he\’s a top player for us,” he told SFR Sport.

“It’s going to be very difficult, but the coach knows how to make up for that and we\’re going to help him come back stronger.”

Mkhitaryan was among the scorers as United beat a battling Everton at Old Trafford in last weekend and in a similar match former United player Wayne Rooney influenced an arrival to the club after his Summer transfer to Merseyside.

The United’s record scorer got a staggering overwhelming applause when he was substituted in the 82nd minute, and Mkhitaryan also stated he miss Rooney at United and the English player deserved all the commendation legitimately.

“Rooney is a legend. He’s an exceptional player. It’s a shame that he’s at Everton now.

“You saw the fans treated him as if he was one of their own. Good luck to him for the rest of the season.

“It was a very good match, a bit difficult, but happily we won.”
