Pogba could undergo surgical Operation for his hamstring injury

The Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba could undergo operation on his hamstring injury he sustained while playing against Basel in the ongoing Champions League group stage.

The French international was substituted, and he limped out of the 3-0 trashing of the Swiss Champions at 18th minute.

Finnish surgeon Sakari Orava says he has been consulted on the injury, with United set to make a decision next week on whether Pogba goes under the knife.

Orava, who operated on £138 million Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele on Tuesday, said: “The decision on surgery will be made next week.

"His injury is a little different to Dembele, so he could heal without surgery."

On Friday Jose Mourinho admitted he had “no idea" how many games Pogba would miss.

Pogba will miss Wednesday’s trip to CSKA Moscow and the home game with Crystal Palace on Saturday ahead of the two-week international break.

Manchester United initially hoped Pogba could return for the Premier clash at rivals Liverpool on October 14, but surgery could rule him out of several more games this season.
