The boss also praised the excellent defensive base his side have produced this season as the Reds have progressed to the last eight of the Europa League.
United take on Granada for the first time in our history and, during his pre-match interview with us, Ole spoke of his players’ desire to get a positive result in Spain to bring back to Old Trafford next week.
There was also good news on the injury front with no fresh knocks from the 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion and Marcus Rashford passed fit to travel…
Firstly Ole, it’s great to see that Marcus Rashford is okay and you’re taking a strong squad out to Granada…
“Marcus is okay-ish. He’s trained on Wednesday morning and Juan is back training as is Alex [Telles], so we’re looking stronger definitely. We didn’t lose anyone last weekend against Brighton.”
Does Marcus’s inclusion shows his determination to always be involved as he picked up that knock against Brighton?
“Yes of course and it’s a big game. We’ve got loads of games and we need players to work together as a squad – is it from the start or is it coming on? He’s available to be selected as I said either as a sub or a starter.”
What’s the latest on Eric Bailly?
“He needs a negative test before he can come back to us. It’ll take the time it takes unfortunately. That’s the world we live in at the moment and we’ve got to take the precautionary measures. Hopefully Eric is still feeling okay, last time I spoke to him he was alright.”
