United boss Jose Mourinho confirmed that Pogba will not play for his country in their UEFA Nations League trip to the Netherlands and friendly against Uruguay, and admitted his side missed the midfielder’s presence at the Etihad.

Mourinho said: “Paul is injured. He was injured during the game in Turin.

“It’s not for me to lose the game and speak about this player that was not playing. I don’t like it very much, but he is important for us in many aspects of the game.”
