Manch­ester United man­ager Jose Mour­inho has brack­eted Paul Pogba’s in­jury as “long-term” — com­par­ing it to those Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic and Mar­cos Rojo are re­cov­er­ing from.

The sever­ity of the ham­string is­sue that caused Pogba, 24, to limp off early in the club’s Cham­pi­ons League re­turn against Basel has been shrouded in mys­tery.

“He’s in­jured, he can­not play and it’s not an in­jury that I can have the hope like I have with (An­to­nio) Va­len­cia or (Phil) Jones,” Mour­inho said.

Mean­while, Mour­inho has been sum­moned to ap­pear in a Madrid court on Novem­ber 3 — two days be­fore he takes his side to his old team Chelsea in the Pre­mier League. The Span­ish au­thor­i­ties opened a case against Mour­inho, for al­leged tax eva­sion dur­ing his time as Real Madrid boss. It is claimed he did not de­clare rev­enue re­lated to his im­age rights in 2011 and 2012.
