Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has launched a scathing attack on Premier League officials, claiming they "simply don't care" about teams who are competing in Europe.
Thursday's victory over Rostov was their 47th match of the campaign thus far, including the Community Shield.
Manchester United will play Belgian side Anderlecht in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
The injury to Pogba, who turned 24 on Wednesday, adds to Mourinho's problems in midfield, with Ander Herrera facing a two-game domestic suspension following his dismissal at Chelsea.
Mourinho's team is now scheduled to play West Bromwich Albion (April 1), Everton (April 4), Sunderland (April 9), Anderlecht (April 13), Chelsea (April 16), Anderlecht again (April 20), Burnley (April 23) and Swansea City (April 30). The squad he's got, the players... and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.
"I believe if we do that, even without a massive success, which is harder in football, even more so in England, but with some type of success, I see myself staying here if they want me to stay".
And he says it will be impossible for his side to enjoy the same level of unprecedented success as they did with Alex Ferguson at the helm, the Scot winning 13 Premier League titles during his 26 years in charge.
"We should be the last team to play at the weekend". I think I was not good enough for him.

The guy is talking absolute nonsense.
However, the Netherlands worldwide insists that he has no bitterness towards Mourinho or his old club in the wake of his move and says he opted to leave purely because of his lack of playing time.
United qualified for the Europa League quarter-finals during the week and will face Middlesbrough this Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.
"Obviously it was a disappointment on Monday that we went out - it could have been another trophy in a season where we have already won two", Mata said. Can you give me an explanation why we play Sunday at 12 o'clock?
"I owe a lot to Middlesbrough, and to be given a chance is everything you need but then you have to grasp it".
