Manchester United’s injury crisis this season has been well documented. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been without at least one or two key players going into practically every fixture since the season kicked off last August.
Anyway, this winter break has definitely helped out in that regard. Scott McTominay has been back out on the training field, as he hopes to make his return sooner rather than later.
Another positive injury update has come from Axel Tuanzebe, with the centre-back hoping to be back out on the pitch ‘soon’, while he also added that he’s feeling a lot stronger as the centre-back recovers from a hamstring issue.
“Yeah, my training has been very good for the last couple of weeks. My physio, John Davin, has helped me a lot with my progression and tried to really optimise the time I’ve had to recover.” Tuanzebe said, while speaking exclusively to ManUtd.com.
“It’s been going really good, I’m a lot stronger now and soon to be back on the pitch with the lads again.”
Tuanzebe’s injury has been a bit of a puzzling one. The details of it were never specified, though he has been missing since mid-October so it must’ve been pretty serious.
It was a real shame, too, as the youngster was starting to really prove his worth, pushing Victor Lindelof extremely hard for that starting centre-back berth. The good thing for Tuanzebe is that he’s versatile, with the ability to play at full-back improving his chances at playing with regularity.
Hopefully, the worst is now behind the talented centre-half and he can now really go on to show his full capabilities. With the Europa League starting up against next week, while United are still in the FA Cup, too, minutes will definitely be handed to Tuanzebe in some big spots. I’m definitely backing the former reserve captain to grasp that chance with both hands.
