But the Armenian star looked a forlorn figure at Carrington today as he sat on his own before joining in Manchester United training.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan looked oddly alone on the touchline as Manchester United training happened at Carrington before their flight to Switzerland
Jose Mourinho rested the former Borussia Dortmund man for their 4-1 home win over Newcastle on Saturday evening.
But it hasn’t stopped reports that the Portuguese is growing fed up with the 28-year-old’s performances, just 16 months after joining Old Trafford.
To be fair to Mkhitaryan, he has been involved in many of United’s matches in the league and Europe this season, as well as both of Armenia’s friendlies last week.
And he has clearly missed the midfield presence of Pogba, classily knitting together United’s midfield play, as he did in the win over the Toon.
