Manchester United have improved their physical condition as Cavani, Varane and Lingard return to training
Manchester United trio Edinson Cavani, Raphael Varane and Jesse Lingard have all returned to training ahead of the club’s Champions League clash against Young Boys – although the trio are unlikely to feature on Wednesday night.
United currently sit first in Group F of the Champions League, with their victory over Villarreal the last time by reserving their place in the round of 16 and securing top spot.
Speaking on Tuesday, interim manager Ralf Rangnick said: “They (Cavani and Varane) can’t play tomorrow but they were part of training today. Edi again yesterday, Rapha the first time.
“I expect them both in full training next week. They are both top players. It is also a question of sustainability. It would be great to have them as soon as possible, but obviously for the rest of the season. “
Rangnick was not drawn to Lingard’s availability, but added: “Everyone has the chance to perform and to introduce themselves. I’m happy to give more of them playing time tomorrow.
“It’s the perfect opportunity to get to know the players.
Anthony Martial is also out of action as he recovers from a knee injury he suffered in training on Saturday.
“We have to make sure he reduces the pain in the next few days and hopefully returns to training next week,” Rangnick added.
