A much-needed injury boost for Manchester United comes ahead of a crucial test of their Champions League credentials against Bayern Munich.
The Reds’ dismal start to the new season, which peaked after a 3-1 loss to Brighton at home last Saturday, could be excused for them traveling to Germany in less than upbeat spirits.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s announcement on Monday that he will miss the next two months after suffering an injury in the last minutes against the Seagulls dealt a further blow to a team that was already thin on the ground.
Raphael Varane, who participated in the inaugural training session on Tuesday morning, might be able to return to United’s starting lineup.
The seasoned France international has been absent from the last two games, so his return would give Erik ten Hag some much-needed confidence after his defense struggled against Brighton.
Mason Mount, a summer acquisition from Chelsea, also participated in first team training, suggesting that he is making good progress in his recovery despite being limited to only two appearances for his new team since joining in the summer.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that it could take Wataru Endo a while to get used to the Premier League.
Wataru Endo may need some time to adjust to playing in the Premier League and to the higher level at Anfield, according to Jurgen Klopp, who spoke to Liverpool’s official website.
Endo transferred from VfB Stuttgart to Liverpool during the summer transfer period. The Premier League team reportedly paid £16.2 million in transfer fees for the defensive midfielder, according to Sky Sports.
