Man United will enter the first leg of the round of 1/16 Europa League against Real Sociedad without the service of many pillars.
The bad news for Manchester United fans recently, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek will not be able to participate in the Europa League match with Real Sociedad due to muscle injuries. Both contracts coming from the summer will not move with the team to Turin to prepare for the first leg of the round of 16.
Both Cavani and Van de Beek played in MU’s disappointing draw against West Brom last weekend. Solskjaer did not disclose the severity of the injury but insisted that both would not be present during their trip to Sociedad.
“Donny and Edinson unfortunately has a muscle injury, so they won’t be moving to Italy with the team. “- Ole shared with the media during the pre-match press conference.
In this situation, the Red Devils fans rekindled their hopes of seeing the young talents of MU play in Europe’s second most prestigious arena. Coach Solskjaer also entered Shola Shoretire and especially the blockbuster contract Amad Diallo on the list of players to prepare for the match with Real Sociedad, promising the opportunity to debut is not small for these tomorrow stars.
In addition, Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay are both open to starting from the start, despite both being included in the squad moving to Turin. These two players will both face a late fitness test to determine if they are eligible to play or not.
This is not very positive news for coach Solsa, while his MU has lost Paul Pogba before due to a thigh injury and had to be out of play for several weeks. The Norwegian strategist also said he does not expect his pupil to return to the pitch this month.
“Paul is recovering well, “- Ole shares more.”He’s starting his treatment, but it will take a few weeks. Paul won’t play in February, that’s for sure, and we still won’t be able to see him again in a few weeks.. “
