Manchester United coach, Erik Ten Hag, talked about the condition of his squad ahead of facing Omonia Nicosia in the 2022-2023 Europa League Group E continuation. He said there are 4 players who will miss the match.
Most of the players played as defenders. They are Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Aaron-Wan Bissaka, and Donny van de Beek.
Yes, Man United will face Omonia Nicosia on the third matchday of Group E of the 2022-2023 Europa League. The match will take place at the Tsirion Athlitiko Kentro Stadium.
In the match later, Man United will try to win in order to keep the chances of qualifying for the next round. The Red Devils-Man United’s nickname- itself is in second place in the current Group F standings with three points from two matches.
Meanwhile, Omonia will also try to get their first win. The reason is, from the two matches that have been passed, they have always lost so that they are in fourth place without winning a single point.
However, against Omonia, Maguire, Varane, Wan Bissaka and Van de Beek did not undergo training with other Man United players. Ten Hag also said the four players will not play in the match because they are still injured.
“Not available for tomorrow,” said Ten Hag, quoted from the official Man United website.
The Dutch coach admitted that Varane could return to play for Man United in the near future. As for Maguire, he had to stay out longer. Then, Wan Bissaka and Van de Beek are still unknown when they can play again.
“For Raphael’s situation, I really hope and I’m pretty sure he can recover quickly to our team,” explained Ten Hag.
“Harry will probably be out for a bit longer. Meanwhile, the other two players (Van de Beek, Wan-Bissaka) I can’t give an opinion on how long they will be out,” he concluded.
