Ole provides Cavani fitness update

Monday 13 September 2021 17:50

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Edinson Cavani is edging closer to a return to full fitness after picking up a knock during the international break.

The Manchester United manager told reporters at Monday evening's Champions League press conference that our no.21 is working hard to get himself back on the available list, after sustaining an injury in our behind-the-closed doors match the week before last.

And Ole hopes to be able to call on Cavani soon.

"He had a slight strain during the international week after the in-house game we played," explained Ole.

"He is hopefully back with us soon. He's working hard to get back."

Cavani has not travelled with the group to Bern for our Champions League group game against Young Boys. 

Ole has taken a 22-man squad with him for the clash which kicks off at 17:45 BST this Tuesday evening.
