Major blow for Manchester United as Paul Pogba's special night ruined by injury

It’s not the first time the Frenchman has missed games because of a hamstring problem.

PAUL POGBA WAS supposed to enjoy a special evening at Old Trafford after being named Manchester United captain for the first time.

But, an apparent hamstring injury has ended his game prematurely and he could now miss the next month.

The Frenchman was handed the armband for United’s Champions League opener against Basel but was forced off after just 19 minutes.

His replacement, Marouane Fellaini, gave the hosts the lead later in the half.

Pogba also picked up a hamstring injury back in March and missed out on international duty with France as well as a pair of United games.

He also suffered with a hamstring-related problem in May, missing two more club fixtures, but did manage to get back in time for the Europa League final.
