Manchester, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refuted reports and said defender Harry Maguire could return for Saturday’s league game against Norwich at Old Trafford.
“Harry has a chance for tomorrow,” he was quoted as saying by BBC. “We will see how he trains.”
The 26-year-old England player Maguire suffered a hip problem in last Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Wolves and missed Tuesday’s Manchester derby loss in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.
There were reports that Maguire would miss the Norwich match but the England star has responded well to treatment.
Of the injury, Solskjaer added: “It was a minor thing, don’t know where the reports are coming from, (reporters) might have mistaken it for Harry Kane.
“It’s not a surprise, he’s a warrior and if there’s a minor problem he’ll put himself up to play.”
Asked if captain Ashley Young will leave for Inter Milan this month, Solskjaer said: “Ashley Young is our player and our captain.”
“We have to handle the speculation and if it is needed, me and Ash will have a discussion.
“We don’t have too many players fit and ready and we need the ones we have. Ash has been very good for this club. Let’s see where we are in February.”
