Paul Pogba will not make Manchester United return against Newcastle United

Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho will reportedly not risk playing Paul Pogba against Newcastle United on Saturday.

The France international has missed the Red Devils’ last 12 games with a hamstring injury, which he suffered during a 3-0 victory over Basel in the Champions League on September 12.

The midfielder has since gone back to United’s Carrington training base to step up his recovery.

According to reports, the 24-year-old has been doing sessions with the club’s reserves, but The Telegraph claimed, this weekend’s game against Newcastle has come too soon for Pogba.

The Red Devils have dropped eight points below league leaders Manchester City since the midfielder got injured.
