Man Utd suffer injury blow ahead of 2021/2022 season
Alex Telles has handed Manchester United an untimely injury blow, after picking up an ankle problem.
Red Devils boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on Saturday confirmed that the 28-year-old defender will be “out for a few weeks” after suffering a knock in training.
That setback meant Telles didn’t feature in a pre-season friendly clash with QPR today.
The Brazilian left-back now faces a race against time to make the start of the 2021/2022 campaign.
“Unfortunately, Alex slipped and he twisted his ankle so he’ll be out for a few weeks.
“We hope it’s not too bad,” Solskjaer has told MUTV.
United have three more friendlies to come after facing QPR.
They will play Brentford, Preston and Everton, before their Premier League opener on August 14 against Leeds at Old Trafford.
