Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw will miss the final stages of the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League campaign, due to the injury he picked up during the 2-2 Premier League draw with Southampton in early July.
The 25-year-old has sat out each of United’s last five matches in all competitions and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left Shaw at home as the rest of the squad travelled to the mini-tournament in Germany.
“Luke, unfortunately, will be out until next season” Solskjaer told MUTV's Stewart Gardner before our final Premier League game, the 2-0 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. “That is a blow for him and a blow for us.
“He has been fantastic.”
Phil Jones was also not among the group which flew out on Sunday 9 August.
The centre-back has been sidelined with a knee problem since football resumed after the lockdown period. Although named in a 30-man squad for the Europa League, he will be unavailable when the Reds take on FC Copenhagen in the quarter-finals on Monday.
“Phil has been following an individualised training programme during the post-lockdown period to optimise recovery from a knee problem,” said Ole.
“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.”
United’s only other injury concern is defender Axel Tuanzebe.
Tuanzebe last featured prior to Christmas and at the beginning of July, Ole said he would likely be missing until September.
There are currently no suspensions for the Manchester United first team.
