Raphael Varane working hard to get back fit

Raphael Varane could come back as early as this weekend, with the Frenchman speaking out as he looks to get back fit.

Manchester United have been pretty stretched in terms of team selection recently, with several players out missing with injuries.

Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane have all been absent for a prolonged period now, which is obviously less than ideal for the new interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

Well, in terms of the fitness of the latter, United have been boosted, as the key star could return this weekend. That’s according to the Manchester Evening News, who have identified Norwich away as a potential return date for the Frenchman while discussing our injury issues.

On top of that, Varane himself has spoken out about the situation and admitted that he’s ‘very excited’ to come back and help the team as soon as possible.

Check out what Raphael Varane had to say here:

Yes, I’m working very hard and, you know, footballers are like F1 [cars] so sometimes we have to change something and to improve the motor,” Varane told official club media.

“I think I have to change a little thing because it’s a big difference, a big change.

“The kind of work is different work so I have to adapt. I know that and I’m working very hard to be at my best as quickly as possible. I know it’s big work but I’m ready to do it, to try to improve.

“I’m very excited to come back to help the team.”

What’s great about Varane is that he knows when a change is required. This guy is a wise old head who has been about long enough to understand when to adapt and adjust.

The Premier League is a completely different kettle of fish to La Liga and the strain it places on your body just cannot be compared.

As of right now, Varane will look to make the necessary adjustments when he comes back into the fore – with Rangnick hoping to have him back pretty quickly no doubt.

It goes without saying that when fit, Varane is our best centre-back. He just oozes class and under our new German boss, I’d expect the multiple Champions League winner to only improve as a player.

The best thing to do now is to not rush Varane back. I’d ease him in by perhaps placing him amongst the substitutes against Norwich City this weekend, slowly increasing his workload after that point.

Can Raphael Varane slot straight back into the side this weekend? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
