Solskjaer delivers positive Sanchez update


Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has issued a positive bulletin on Alexis Sanchez's recovery from injury.

Sanchez is expected to be out for up to eight weeks after sustaining knee ligament damage in United's 3-2 win over Southampton at the start of the month.

He is working on his recovery and Solskjaer is hopeful that he will be available for the Easter period when United face Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea in the space of seven days.

"He’s coming back [to England] on Sunday. He’s not been on grass yet, he’s been seeing his people in Barcelona," Solskjaer told reporters on Friday.

“He’s still a few weeks away. If we get to Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea – that period – he probably will be available.

“You can never be 100 per cent sure but Alexis is such a determined lad, he loves football, so I’m sure he’s doing everything he can that when he comes back he’s going to show his best side.”
