Jose Mourinho has insisted that he has “no idea” about when Paul Pogba will make his return from injury for Manchester United.

The French midfielder is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered during the first half of Manchester United’s Champions League win over Basel earlier this month.

Pogba is expected to be out of action for a number of weeks as he waits for the muscular problem to heal.

However, Mourinho has refused to put a date on Pogba’s expected comeback for Manchester United and instead described the situation as a great chance for some of his other players to stake their claims for a spot in the first team.

Asked when Pogba will return, Mourinho told a news conference on Friday: “No idea.

“But again, great opportunity for other players to play and I trust them all. I’m not going to cry or count the days for Pogba to be back.

“When he’s back, welcome. Until then, I trust my people.”

Manchester United return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they take on CSKA Moscow in Russia.

The Red Devils are aiming to progress through to the last 16 of Europe’s elite club competition after having won the Europa League under Mourinho last season.

Manchester United, who finished in a disappointing sixth place in the Premier League last term, also won the Community Shield and League Cup in the Portuguese coach’s first season in charge of the club.
