You do wonder how players and their entourages work. Telles and his sister posted graphics suggesting he would be involved today but he’s actually unwell. A Photoshopper had their time wasted there.
Martial is a minor loss for United, going off his form since September. It’s a potentially sorry end to a sorry season and only reinforces the need for a new striker.
Martial hasn’t backed it up after a really good 2019-20 and Edinson Cavani wants out, according to his father, and has declared himself unavailable for some games when the medical staff have declared him available.
Well, it didn’t take Solskjaer long to contradict what he said and Martial’s gone from potentially being out of the season to maybe being out for ‘a few weeks’.
Solskjaer is as bad with medical information as Dr Nick and it is getting to the point where the club doctor should sit next to him at Zoom calls and give the injury news.
Bailly is becoming topical for all the wrong reasons. United cannot afford to give him a long-term contract because of his horrendous injury record and nobody is going to buy that excuse, despite his tendency to get injured on international duty.
For Maguire to have drawn level on appearances with a player who signed more than three years before him is embarrassing for Bailly. Yes, he should have played more this season but he has become United’s ‘sicknote’.
