Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has issued updates on several Manchester United players, including the news that Marcus Rashford is fit to face Huddersfield Town.
Mourinho, who does speak about injuries, spoke about injuries to three first-team players in particular. In addition, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini are also out.
On Marcus Rashford:
“Nobody else is coming back. We have the same players as we had for the Benfica match.”
On Paul Pogba:
“Paul is not here, I don’t know when he comes back. I don’t know when he’s available. I have no idea about it.”
On Zlatan Ibrahimovic:
“Zlatan is here. He’s working here and under our control.
“He’s working as you would expect – so, so, so hard. But he’s not going to be back in the next week or the next couple of weeks.
“Let him take his time and be back when everybody feels is the right moment. Do I believe he’ll be back in 2017? Yes, I do. But it’s just a feeling.”
Mourinho also discussed other injuries, although he doesn’t talk about injuries:
“The injury process normally is a process of some guys get injured, some guys recover from injury, unless we lose completely the balance, this happens to almost every team.
“Unless a team has a phenomenal season where everything goes well and not even a broken nail happens to a player. [Soon], Zlatan, Marcos [Rojo], Pogba and Fellaini will be back and somebody [else] will get injured and I think that’s a normal process.”
