- Mourinho says Pogba, Ibrahimovic and Rojo are set to return from injury for Manchester United.
- Rojo may resume by November 18th while Pogba and Ibrahimovic may return later this month.
- United have 13 players away on international duty.
Manchester United Football Club manager Jose Mourinho has hinted that Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are close to returning to first team
action after a prolonged absence on the sidelines.
Mourinho also disclosed that Marcos Rojo is also nearing a comeback after suffering damaged knee ligaments in April and could return to the squad for Newcastle's visit to Old Trafford on Nov. 18.
Mourinho told MUTV: "We have the group of players which are the ones that we hope will recover as soon as possible.
"They have to work every day but they are in a good position now.
"Pogba, Ibra, Rojo, Fellaini. They are in good positions so I think we can go into this part of the season, the Christmas period, and after, in a strong position."
With 13 players away on international duty, Mourinho was quick to declare his intentions of allowing those who remain in Manchester a week off to rest.
Mourinho said: "They all disappear and then we have a couple who aren't selected for their national team, like Smalling and Herrera and they really deserve, after so many matches, to have a week off which I'm going to give them."
United's next game in the Premier League is scheduled for November 18th.
