Manchester United have been handed a timely boost ahead of their crucial clash with Spurs on Saturday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hanging on by a thread following the humiliating 5-0 drubbing against Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Liverpool’s attack decimated United’s dubious defence, with Mohamed Salah tearing them apart en route to a hat-trick, but the Red Devils may be able to bolster their backline with the return of a key player.
Solskjaer was spotted in public for the first time since Sunday at United training, but fans were delighted to see the welcome return of Raphael Varane during the session.
Varane, who was brought in in the summer to boost United’s backline, has been out of action since suffering a quad injury while away on international duty with France earlier this month.
The four-time Champions League-winner was seen linking up with under-fire Solskjaer at the club’s Carrington training ground on Wednesday.
The Frenchman missed United’s last two games, the defeats to Leicester and Liverpool, and was put through his paces in a number of drills
It has not yet clear whether Varane will be fit enough to face Tottenham on Saturday, but his return to training will be a welcome sight for Solskjaer.
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba — who was sent off for a reckless lunge 15 minutes after coming on against Liverpool — has rubbished claims suggesting he snubbed Solskjaer after the game.Internet Explorer Channel Network
