Paul Pogba has been sidelined since September 12, and it remains unclear when exactly – or even approximately – he will be available again, but Jose Mourinho insists that talking about injured players is pointless.
We never miss the players that are injured. That is our way of thinking. They are injured, we don’t think about them
