Europa League: Solskjaer hints on Man Utd stars he will not play ahead of Granada clash

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said he will never select any player who is “at risk”.

Solskjaer stated this on Wednesday while answering questions at a press conference over Marcus Rashford’s fitness.

Rashford will travel for the team’s Europa League quarter-final against Granada on Thursday night in Spain.

He scored United’s equaliser against Brighton on Sunday but came off after being caught in a tackle and missed training on Tuesday.

With Anthony Martial injured, Rashford is hoping to lead United’s attack, alongside Edinson Cavani.

“Marcus is travelling and we’ve just got to make a decision tomorrow if he starts or if he’s on the bench.

“I don’t pick players when we know there’s a risk,” Solskjaer said.

“Of course there’s always a risk when you step onto the pitch and when you play football.

“But if the physios and the medical advice is that ‘this is too much of a risk to play him, I will never ever play a player that we, in advance, know about if it’s going to make it worse or if it’s a serious one.

“Marcus joined in training this morning so let’s see how he reacts. If there’s any risk of making this worse, I’m not going to overplay him.”
