Mourinho not crying or counting the days to Pogba returns

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he's not going to cry or count the days until Paul Pogba returns from injury.

The French midfielder will miss this weekend's game at Southampton because of a hamstring injury and Mourinho says he has no idea when he'll return.

Manchester United will pay all visa costs for fans travelling to Russia for the club’s Champions League match against CSKA Moscow.

The club did the same last season for the game against FC Rostov, also in Russia.

The latest gesture has been welcomed by the Manchester United Supporters’ Trust (MUST), which has been a vocal critic of the Glazer family who own the club.

A United spokesman said: “We are pleased to confirm that the club has committed to covering the cost of supporter visas, up to a maximum of £118.20.”

Fans must supply their passport to the Russia consulate in Manchester and then forward a copy of the receipt to United for the September 28 fixture.

A statement from MUST said:

It is good to see Manchester United supporting our travelling fans in Europe by covering the costs of Russian visas for the CSKA Moscow away game. This comes following requests from M.U.S.T - the Manchester United Supporters Trust. M.U.S.T has consistently lobbied the club for greater support for our fans, both at home and away.

“Recent wins this season include more discounted youth season tickets being made available around the ground and also cheaper League Cup tickets. Previously our discussions have also resulted in visa fees being covered for the last Russian away match in Rostov as well as laying on free coaches at European away games and to domestic finals and semi-finals at Wembley too.”
