Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has revealed that Paul Pogba is a doubt for Thursday’s Premier League fixture against rivals Manchester City.
The France midfielder who completed 120 minutes in the Europa League quarter-final tie against Anderlecht on Thursday, hobbled off in their 2-0 win over Burnley on Sunday.
“I don’t know,” Mourinho told a news conference, saying Pogba was “dead” following his recent exertions.
“I don’t know if he’s injured or if it’s just the accumulation of fatigue in the muscles, I don’t know,” Mourinho added.
“But if he cannot play Thursday, then he cannot play Thursday. We play another one and we don’t cry.”
Mourinho also told the BBC he was “very happy” with his side’s overall performance at Turf Moor.
“It’s not easy to win here, and it’s even harder to be in control — and we were in control for 90 minutes,” he said.
“We understood the way they play and we played against their strengths. I think it was a great result that we deserved.”
