Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Rojo and Jones are still dealing with injuries
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has offered an injury update ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Sheffield United.
Speaking at his press conference ahead of the trip to Bramall Lane, which was streamed on the club’s app at 1:30pm, Solskjaer spoke about the fitness of his squad.
He said that Edinson Cavani is still a doubt for the trip to Bramall Lane, having sat out United’s last two games.
There were also updates on fringe players Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones, who have both had rotten luck with injuries.
“Edinson has done well in his rehab, but we still have to make a decision about whether to pick him. I doubt it for tomorrow,” said Solskjaer.
“Marcos has felt a niggle. He played for the reserves, got a knock, and then got another injury. Hopefully he’ll be back for January.
“Phil Jones, he should be ready for January. Sergio [Romero] has been training hard as well.”
Rojo has been included in United’s Premier League squad but is yet to play a senior game this season.
He has actually been linked with tomorrow’s opponents by the Daily Mail last week.
It seems he’s suffered another injury setback, which has hampered his attempts to get fit in the Under 23s.
Perhaps both men will be ready in time to seek moves elsewhere when the transfer window opens.
On Cavani, perhaps Solskjaer is keeping his cards close to his chest and keeping Chris Wilder guessing about whether he’ll face the Uruguayan.
