Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has a "long-term" injury, according to manager Jose Mourinho.

There has been little update on his situation, but Mourinho has now revealed that Pogba will be sidelined for a while.

Paul Pogba was seen limping off the pitch in the 19th minute during Manchester United's UEFA Champions League opener against Basel.

Mourinho has refused to put a timeline on the 24-year-old's recovery when probed over the past fortnight, but it emerged earlier this week that surgery will likely be required to rectify the damage.

Initially, the knock wasn't thought to be severe, with the idea that Pogba would miss weeks rather than months. 'From all the injuries we had, I hope that I can have some players available for tomorrow.

Mou listing Pogba along with Ibrahimovic and Rojo, who have been out since suffering knee ligament injuries in April, does appear worrying for United.

Looking ahead to tomorrow's game against Crystal Palace, Mourinho highlighted the importance of having strong squad mentality.

United have won each of their four games without the former Juventus man, including a 4-0 win against Everton, as well as thumping CSKA Moscow 4-1 in midweek.

"He's injured, he can not play tomorrow. For long-term injuries, I don't speak about them, so Ibra, Pogba, Rojo and these players, I don't think about them", the boss further explained.

Opponents Crystal Palace are now rock bottom at the foot of the Premier League table, having picked up no points from their first six matches played.
