Harry Maguire faces a ligaments injury that can keep him sidelined in the Europa League final.

Manchester United’s

captain was injured during the Red Devils’ victory over Aston Villa, and he is going to miss the remaining of the club’s Premier League campaign.

The high-profile defender is suffering from a ligament injury, but

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

hopes that the player could be available for his side’s game in the Europa League final.

Solskjaer said:

“The good news is it wasn’t broken, there was no fracture, but a ligament injury is serious. If I'm very positive that is maybe stretching it, I'm hopeful he might be ready for it (the Europa League final).

“I don’t think he’ll play in the league again but we'll do everything we can to get him ready for the final.

“You always try to look after players long-term. If he’s fit he’ll play for us, if he's not he won’t. We're hopeful he's ready and if he’s ready for us he’ll be ready for the Euros.”

The Red Devils boss has also explained the reason behind changing his lineup game by game as he made ten changes after their victory against Aston Villa and used almost a completely different team against Leicester City.

“There’ll be changes, of course, but many of the players that played did really well, so they're in contention as well,”

Solskjaer said


“It's about managing the squad now, building momentum and confidence, making sure we get enough points to get second and then going into the final confident.”
