UNITED star Paul Pogba has been filmed DANCING around the club dressing room... despite being ruled out for four weeks through injury.

The 24-year-old midfielder left the stadium on crutches after picking up the injury in Manchester United's Champions League win over Basel and missed Sunday's game against Everton.

Pogba replaced Scholes when the Englishman was retiring for the first time in 2011 and called it a dream come true for him to replace Scholes in his testimonal against the New York Cosmos.

'It's a muscular injury in the hamstring but we have a normal procedure and wait a few more days. The Frenchman has suffered a lot of criticism a year ago after his then world record move to United from Juventus.

They then face a number of important fixtures over the coming weeks - which Pogba may be forced to sit out - with the Champions League group stage continuing, while the early pacesetters also have Premier League meetings with the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea on the horizon.

Paul Pogba started the season in very good form.

The Armenian International told SFR Sport, "It's hard, because he's a top player for us". Mourinho has dismissed the reports suggesting that the Frenchman will be out for three months.

"You're going to lose players during the season, you've got to overcome it". He believes that "Mourinho knows how to make up for Pogba's absence and the team will help him come back stronger". Mkhitaryan admitted that it is a real shame that he got very less time to play with Rooney.

United are next in action against Burton Albion in the Caraboa Cup tonight (8pm).
