The Manchester United’s captain injured his ankle last week and was seen on crutches as United lost to Liverpool. Ole admits that the English defender has been a big miss at the moment.
When quizzed if Harry Maguire will be fit to play the Europa League final, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told reporters: “Hopefully, we can have good news early but I’ll give it a while on Harry.
“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.
The Manchester United boss continued: “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.”
Maguire injured his ankle in United’s win over Aston Villa last week and has missed games against Leicester City and Liverpool.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils lost both games, which goes to show how crucial the skipper is for our defense. Thus, if he’s back for the final against Villarreal on May 26, it’d be a great boost for Ole and co.
