Ole Gunnar Solskjaer All But Rules Out Harry Maguire From The Europa League Final With Injury: The club’s captain and defender is said to be out of action for a sizeable amount of time
Hobbling away from his side’s bygone 3-1 win in the Premier League, the forecast for Harry Maguire’s injury doesn’t look too bright.
Involved in a clash with Anwar-El Ghazi, Harry Maguire failed to continue. The club’s captain was taken away from the encounter at the 78th minute mark after being left in excruciating pain as he fell on his lower ankle.
Harry Maguire Set To Miss Europa League Final With Injury
And in the aftermath of the blow, Manchester United’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come up with a dreary prognosis on the injury. The Norwegian all but ruled out Maguire out of his side’s 26th May Europa League final.
He said: “Hopefully [the Europa League final] will be OK with Harry. I don’t know.
“We need to check it. It might be a few weeks or a month – we don’t know.
“It was his ankle or lower leg. I think the player landed on him and he twisted something.”
While further scans will reveal if Maguire will be able to make the cut for the Europa League final, the CB is ascertained to miss his team’s Premier League clashes against Leicester City and Liverpool. His loss comes as a massive blow with Maguire not missing a minute of action since joining the club in 2019.
Manchester United are slated to compete in three Premier League outings in five days before they step out in the Europa League. The club sealed its berth in the final despite losing 3-2 to AS Roma courtesy of a 6-2 win in the first round of the double header.
It saw them set up a clash with Villareal who progressed through to the summit clash after holding Arsenal to a 0-0 draw at the Emirates. The result was enough for the club after winning the leg in Spain 2-1.
