The Manchester United football players are expecting the most important match of the season next week. At the stadium in Gdansk, they will compete with the Villarreal team in the fight for the Europa League trophy (Wednesday, 21.00).
However, judging by the words of the head of the profession Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Devils will play in the final without captain Harry Maguire. An experienced defender was injured during the match with Aston Villa in the Premier League, his ligaments were damaged.
Since then, he has been wearing a splint and moving with the help of crutches, and as things stand, he will not be able to help his teammates against the Yellow Submarine. "He walks, but he's far from running to be honest.
I don't believe we'll see him in Gdansk. However, as I said before, we'll wait for him to Tuesday night, when we have the last practice, so we'll see if he can come out ." "He is recovering slowly, but the ligaments need time to heal.
He is a very important figure in the locker room, the leader." "Before the fans return I believe you could hear him from the stands He will be with us, he will be in the locker room and they will make sure everyone is ready for the finals.
Martial, McTominay and James
The good news is that Anthony Martial could be back in action until the grand final, which Solskjaer confirmed after the match with Fulham (1: 1), played last Tuesday. "We still have hope for Anthony.
He works very hard. We hope he will be ready for the finals. He is full of enthusiasm. I can't say he will be ready for the finals, he is still out of the team for a long time, but I still hope " During the meeting with Fulham, Scott McTominay also suffered an injury, while the Brazilian Fred is also struggling with fitness, and also Daniel Jamines is under question before the big final Before the match with Unai Emery's team in the fight for the cup in the Europa League, Manchester United will cross swords with Wolverhampton (Sunday, 17.00) in the last round of the Premier League.
The match with the Wolves has no competitive significance for Solskjaer's team, which secured second place in the table and placement in the Champions League. However, the Europa League trophy would certainly be important to them if they want to consider this season a success, although this is still below what Manchester can do.
