Breaking: Pogba, a big doubt for United cracker with Sevilla
Manchester United midfield maestro, Paul Pogba is a big doubt for the club’s Champions League Round of 16 second-leg cracker with the Spanish side, Sevilla as he was yet again absent in training on Monday morning.
The French International was not included in the Premier League matchday squad that secured a 2-1 victory over arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday after sustaining a thigh injury during preparations for the high-tension encounter.
It was believed the player would return to training on Monday to be available for selection for the must-win game at home to Sevilla. However, Pogba was unseen at the AON Training Complex at Carrington as the Red Devils intensify preparations for the clash.
Defenders, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, and Daley Blind also missed this morning session, while midfielder, Ander Herrera was also unavailable. Eric Bailly did train, however, despite an injury scare on Saturday.
When Jose Mourinho was asked after the win over Liverpool if Pogba would be available for Sevilla, the two-time Champions League winning Manager answered: “I don’t know.
“It was contact with a player in the last minute of the training session [on Friday]. If I finished the session one minute before it wouldn’t have happened.”
