Man Utd vs Copenhagen: Solskjaer to be without three players for Europa League clash
Manchester United have confirmed that their head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will be without three players when they take on Copenhagen in the Europa League last-8 fixture at RheinEnergieSTADION in Germany on Monday night due to injury.
The players are Phil Jones, Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe.
Man United head to the game after knocking out LASK from the Europa League round of 16 second-leg tie at Old Trafford last Wednesday.
Meanwhile, providing an update on Jones’s injury, Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference as quoted by Man United’s official website: “Phil has been following an individualized training programme during the post-lockdown period to optimize recovery from a knee problem.
“It was a good opportunity as we had sufficient cover in defensive positions for the remaining Premier League games and he will continue to work with a fitness coach at the Aon Training Complex, while the squad are in Germany.”
The kick-off time for the game is scheduled at 8 pm.
