Mourinho: Cut out the PlayStation football. I don't like it

In the meantime, United have five games remaining in September in one of the busiest periods of the season, and Mourinho will be looking to his alternative midfield options to get him through it.

Pogba came off injured during the first half of his side's comfortable 3-0 win over Basel in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Asked if he was aware of Mourinho's comments on his adaptation to Premier League life, the defender said: "I have noticed what's been written, but it's not something that I have focused on".

"Now I'm going to leave the match for a while and then watch the replay to see if there's anything that I could have done better. So if no Paul for Sunday, we have [Ander] Herrera, we have [Michael] Carrick, we have [Marouane] Fellaini and we have [Nemanja] Matic". His decision can be considered a young player who wants to play every weekend but also a young player that is not ready to fight for something hard and it's hard to play in Manchester United's midfield.

"Ashley Young was not on the bench in the last match and today he started the match and he played for 90 minutes, and the next match you can have another surprise of some player that you think is going to play and is not going to play".

"I don't know. I just know from experience it's a muscular injury".

"You have to be ready to fight for the position and I am disappointed he left".

I don't know (what the severity is), Mourinho told MUTV.

"So we need this and in the Premier League and the Champions League I have to choose the players in relation to the quality". They are all good players and I think it's easy to play with them all.
