Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has returned to training a month after being sidelined by a hamstring injury.
Paul Pogba posted a series of videos on social networks on Wednesday showing him jogging on a treadmill and working out in the gym.
Jose Mourinho has so far refused to set a timetable for Paul Pogba’s return but has admitted that the midfielder is considered a “long-term absentee” along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo.
Sources have told ESPN FC that France coach Didier Deschamps does not expect the Paul Pogba, who has been in Miami, to be available before the next international break starting Nov. 6, a day after United meets with Chelsea on Stamford Bridge.
Paul Pogba has lost five games since being forced after 19 minutes of a 3-0 victory over Basel in the Champions League on 12 September and will also miss the Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
Mourinho will also be without Marouane Fellaini, who suffered a knee injury playing for Belgium. The midfielder was replaced during the first half of his 4-3 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina after suffering tense knee ligaments.
After flying back to Manchester on Monday, he was screened at Carrington on Tuesday. Belgian FA doctors hope the midfielder will lose two or three weeks.
“There is no punch, no problem,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “We do not cry with injuries, we can cry with the process that leads to injuries, but we do not cry, we only trust the players who will help.”
Romelu Lakaku is expected to be fit to face Liverpool after playing the final 23 minutes of the Belgian World Cup qualifier with Cyprus on Tuesday.
The forward lost the game to Bosnia with an ankle injury suffered in training before United’s 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace before the international break.
