Anthony Martial is unlikely to feature for Manchester United again this season after beginning his recovery from a knee injury, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted.
The forward has been ruled out for several weeks due to the problem, which he suffered while playing in the recent internationals. While the immediate outlook isn't too favourable, the boss says Anthony is keen to return as soon as possible, with the European Championships looming large.
“Anthony has started his recovery and, if we see him before the end of the season, I will be very surprised,” the boss admitted. “But, of course, he is determined to come back as quickly as he can. There are important games for us before the end of the season and then there are the Euros [with France, in the summer].
“He has already come in [to the training ground], he is bright around the place. [He’s] disappointed he can’t help us now, but, of course, he wants to work to get back as quickly as possible.”
Eric Bailly is also unavailable for the Reds at the moment.
The Ivorian is still back in his homeland, having tested positive for COVID-19 while with the national team for the recent Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
“He needs a negative test before he can come back to us,” said Solskjaer.
“It'll take the time that it takes unfortunately. That's the world we live in at the moment and we've got to take the precautionary measures. Hopefully, Eric is still feeling okay. The last time I spoke to him, he was alright.”
Long-term absentee Phil Jones remains on the sidelines.
There are no current suspensions for the Manchester United first team.
