Mount steps up his recovery from injury

Wednesday 27 December 2023 17:00

Manchester United midfielder Mason Mount has returned to training on the grass at Carrington, as he steps up his recovery from an injury.

The England international has been unavailable since the Premier League win over Luton Town on 11 November and he continues to work hard on his rehabilitation with the support of medical staff.

In a sign of his recent progression, the 24-year-old forward was pictured training individually on Wednesday morning as the rest of his team-mates completed a recovery session nearby. 

Like all United fans, Mount enjoyed the dramatic Boxing Day victory over Aston Villa and, via Instagram, he congratulated team-mate Rasmus Hojlund on scoring a first Premier League goal. 

Erik ten Hag could provide an update on Mason's progress in his weekly press conference this coming Friday.

Encouragingly, the manager confirmed last week that Mason and two more absentees – Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez – could all return in January.

While sidelined, Mount has put his time to good use with a number of community-based activities. 

Our no.7 has supported the 'Together For Short Lives' charity and, last week, he surprised residents at Timperley Nursing Home by joining them for an early Christmas dinner.
