Solskjær on Maguire Injury: ‘dosent look great’
Speaking in his post-match press conference after United’s draw with Fulham on Tuesday, Solskjaer gave an injury update on his captain. Maguire who sustained an injury to his knee is facing a race to be back in time for the Europa league finals.
He said: ‘Harry, we’re working on, doesn’t look great.’
‘He’s shown his importance. I felt I became a very good player when I was injured. People realise what you can do.
‘Harry is our leader and he’s been a big miss at the moment. I’ll give him as long as he needs before he says yes or no.
‘He’s making progress but we don’t want to test it out too early. Harry wants this so much but he doesn’t want to take risks either.
‘When I spoke to him this morning, he was quite positive. We have to be positive and think he’s going to make it, until we have to say no. I’ve always been an optimist.’
He said: ‘We’ve had a couple of players that have got injuries with Scott and Fred, so I’ll see how they are.
‘Unfortunately, Scott had to come off and Fred doesn’t look great while he’s walking now but we’ve got eight days, so hopefully everyone will be available that was available today. ‘
‘Anthony, we’ve still got a little bit of hope for. We’re hoping. He’s working really hard and we’re hoping he’ll be available for the final.
‘He’s been very enthusiastic, so I can’t say he won’t be fit for the final but of course, he’s been out for a long time. I’m still hopeful.’
Solskjær will be hoping to have a full squad as he prepares to take on Villarreal in 7 day.
