Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an update on team news ahead of weekend’s clash with Huddersfield.
Solskjaer has revealed Eric Bailly, who was set to be on the sidelines for 9-10 months will resume training during the pre-season. Youngster Mason Greenwood is set to miss weekend’s match although he might be fit for selection in the final game against Cardiff City. Solskjaer also revealed that second goalkeeper Sergio Romero tweaked his knee during the week and will be on the sidelines on Sunday.
“Eric [Bailly has probably been the one smiling the most out of all of us because you fear the worst,” Ole told MUTV, in response to the centre-back's knee injury last time out.
“You fear the cruciate. You’re always worried that it might be nine or 12 months out, but we think he’ll be back for pre-season, so that’s positive.”
”There are a few little niggles, so let’s count the numbers on Sunday morning, I reckon. Mason [Greenwood] started off this week training but then he’s out injured again, unfortunately. We were looking at bringing him into the squad for the last two games – maybe he’ll make the last one [against Cardiff].”
For United’s dreams of qualifying for the Champions League next season, they must win against Huddersfield and hope results elsewhere go their way.
