Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has missed the last few games due to an injury problem. However, Ole seems more optimistic about his chances.
When quizzed about Harry Maguire’s chances of playing against Villarreal, the United’s boss said: “Harry’s gonna jog up and down the sideline a bit, I reckon, and he’ll probably try to join in (in training).”
Also, Luke Shaw joined his boss to provide an encouraging update on Maguire in the pre-match press conference – saying: “Harry’s here, he’s traveled with us. There’s another session to go and we’ll see how he is.
“We’re hoping he’ll be available but the main focus is for the players who are out there to fit to enjoy the session today and be ready for tomorrow.”
This means Maguire is probably fit enough to do some light training and possibly even work with the United group in Tuesday’s training session before the game on Wednesday.
Ole is much more optimistic about Maguire’s chances now than he was a few days ago – indicating that the United captain could perhaps play a part in the Europa League final after all!
