Solskjaer drops concerning update about Maguire injury

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he is in the dark as to whether Harry Maguire will be fit or not after the international break.

The Manchester United skipper was forced off in the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa last week with a calf injury and Solskjaer revealed after the game that he could be out of action for “a few weeks”.

United have a two-week break before their next game against Leicester City, giving Maguire a window in which to recover, but according to the Norwegian, uncertainty reigns.

“Let’s see, it’s still two weeks until the next game, so we’re hoping so but we don’t know,” he told beIN SPORTS after the 1-1 draw with Everton.

United have looked fragile in Maguire’s absence, conceding a soft goal on the counter-attack against the Toffees on Saturday.

The makeshift partnership of Victor Lindelof and Raphael Varane has failed to inspire confidence, meaning Solskjaer will need his captain back as soon as possible if he is to get United’s season back on track.
