Harry Maguire continues to struggle with an ankle ligament injury as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides a worrying update on the defender’s progress.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the Fulham draw on Tuesday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Harry Maguire we’re working on, it doesn’t look great.
“He’s shown his importance. I felt I became a very good player when I was injured. People realize 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, 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.”
The Englishman is currently racing against the clock to recover in time for the Europa League final against Villarreal on May 26.
Harry Maguire picked up an ankle ligament injury earlier this month with the Red Devils struggling defensively without their captain.
