Pogba has been on the sidelines with a hamstring problem for six weeks after sustaining the injury in the Red Devils’ 3-0 Champions League victory over Basel on September 12.
United boss Mourinho revealed he is working separately from Pogba and refused to put a date on a return despite reports the Frenchman is hopeful of facing Chelsea next weekend.
Asked about the midfielder’s possible return to action following Saturday’s defeat of Tottenham, Mourinho stated: ‘Again, I have no idea.
‘Honestly, I have no idea. I am not in control of his recovering process. He is not training with me.’
Mourinho believes Marcos Rojo, however, will be fit again when United’s players return from the international break.
He added: ‘He [Pogba] is on individual work, and when a player is on individual work and not in my group, even under certain conditions, for example Marcos Rojo is working with me under certain conditions, but he’s working with me, so I would expect Marcos Rojo to be ready to play after the international break.
I can predict that because he’s training with me.
‘So Pogba, I have no idea.’
