Pogba still unavailable but kids not an option for Man Utd boss Mourinho

  |   Football / ISL

Paul Pogba will not be back for Manchester United's Premier League contest against Southampton on Wednesday, but Jose Mourinho will resist the temptation to play the "kids".

France midfielder Pogba did not travel with United for Sunday's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Tottenham due to the death of his father.

"I don't think [he will be available]," Mourinho said. "I think that his dad's funeral has to be between Tuesday and Wednesday in France. "I don't think Paul has conditions to play, we let him be completely free when he's ready to be back. "So I am going to rotate people. [Daley] Blind will not play against Southampton, [Marouane] Fellaini will because he's not played the last three [league] matches [due to suspension].

"These are examples of trying not to accumulate but people have to play, we don't have other players. I cannot put four or five kids on together in the fire, I cannot do that to the kids."
