The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are concerned about the prospect of losing Paul Pogba for an extended period of time…
The Frenchman went off with an injury whilst Man Utd cruised to victory over FC Basel, leaving many sweating on his fitness.
Unfortunately, since then, the BBC have reported that he could be out for over a month as he recovers from a hamstring problem.
The long-term effects of this injury are evident, but our landlord is slightly more concerned about the immediate problem facing Mourinho. The Portuguese needs to find a way of replacing the Frenchman adequately.
Fortunately, he has a number of options from which to choose, but that in of itself is a bit of a problem. There’s so much quality in the Man Utd midfield, but who deserves to start?
With the fans in the Transfer Tavern unable to come to an agreement, our landlord opened the poll up to the masses, and they responded in droves. There was one clear winner, too, with Ander Herrera receiving a whopping 65% of the vote. Marouane Fellaini was next with 30%, whilst poor Michael Carrick picked up only 5% of the vote.
Clearly, then, the Spanish midfield maestro is a favourite amongst Reds, and given his hard work with the ball going forward, he would be a decent fit.
Do you agree?
