Edinson cavani He will remain on the sidelines of Manchester United and this Thursday he will not be at the disposal of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the UEFA Europa League round of 16 rematch against Milan in Italy.
Despite the fact that the English club had officially reported that the Uruguayan had recovered and was on the list of 21 footballers who would travel to the Italian city, a last-minute mishap caused the forward to get off this roster.
The Manchester statement said: “Edinson Cavani suffered a reaction in the last training session before boarding the flight at Manchester Airport.”
“The Uruguayan was always facing a race against time to get to this match, which in their first leg ended tied 1-1, but now he will remain in England with defender Eric Bailly, who was also being evaluated,” added the official report.
Speaking to Manchester United TV, Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had confirmed: “We are happy to have Donny van de Beek, Paul (Pogba) and David De Gea, great players back. Unfortunately, Edinson seems to have reacted a bit to today’s training and didn’t feel ready to travel. “
