Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that striker Marcus Rashford is in the squad for the trip to Spain to face Granada in the Europa League quarter-final first leg.
Rashford was forced off with an ankle injury after scoring during the 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion but the issue has turned out to be a minor one.
“Marcus is travelling and we’ve just got to make a decision tomorrow whether he starts or whether he’s on the bench,’ Solskjaer said at a pre-match press conference ahead of the tie.
“I don’t think he’ll be a 90-minute man, so let’s see where we are tomorrow.
“Marcus joined in training this morning, so let’s see how he reacts. If there’s a risk of making this worse, I won’t play him.”
Solskjaer also confirmed that Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial remain unavailable.
“Eric is still in Ivory Coast, he needs a negative [Covid-19] test before he can come back. Anthony, if we see him before the end of the season, I’ll be very surprised “he said.
The boss also gave encouraging news about Amad Diallo’s progress to the Red Devils starting XI.
“Yeah of course he is,’ Solskjaer said when asked if Amad was close to his first start.
‘He’s get more and more used to our expectations and standards and the training, the level of intensity in the games of course over here.
“He did well when he played 45 minutes against Milan.
“A start might come now, it might come in a little while.”
