Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not given up hope that Harry Maguire can play some part in Manchester United’s Europa League final against Villarreal on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils take on Unai Emery’s Spanish side in Gdansk as they seek a first major trophy for four years.
Defender Maguire has missed United’s past four Premier League games after suffering ligament damage against Aston Villa on May 9.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not given up hope Harry Maguire can play in the Europa League final
Solskjaer said last week that Maguire ‘has to train on Tuesday’ to have any chance and the Norwegian revealed during his pre-match press conference that he’ll be involved in the session in some capacity.
He said: ‘Harry is just going to jog up and down the sideline a little bit, I reckon.
‘And he’ll probably try to join in.
The 28-year-old centre-back has played 54 games for United this season and had played every minute of United’s league games since joining from Leicester in 2019 before suffering his injury.
Luke Shaw added: ‘Harry’s here, he’s travelled with us.
‘We’ve still got a session to go so we’ll see how he is. We’re not too sure yet but we’re hoping he can be available.
‘But the main focus is for the players who are fit to enjoy the session and be ready for the game tomorrow.’
United, who finished second behind Manchester City in the Premier League, have not won a trophy since lifting the 2017 Europa League under Jose Mourinho.
