Solskjaer provides encouraging update on Lindelof, sets Varane return date

Man United boss has provided a piece of good news for the United fans when he revealed that he expects Victor Lindelof to be available for Saturday’s derby.

“He’s still a doubt, but hopefully, he can come back in tomorrow and say he’s ready‚Ķ” Ole said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“I would expect him to be ready, put it that way but I can’t promise you.”

The United head coach has provided an update on Raphael Varane.

“With all the technology now you expect him to be out for four or five weeks with the scans. It’s a blow for us.

“Raphael has come in and been really really influential.

“Eric [Bailly] came in last time and was excellent. That’s why we have a big squad and cope with absentees.”
