Manchester United returns to full strength on Saturday.
The Red Devils have already begun their pre-season schedule for the 2023/24 season. The squad was called up, followed by training and a friendly against Leeds United in Oslo, Norway, on Sept. 13. The result was a 2-0 victory.
Now, players who were rested for the June A match will join the team. “The players (who were given extra time off due to the June A matches) will return on Saturday (15),” Ten Haag said, according to MUTV. This includes key United players such as Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.
However, they are not expected to play against Olympique Lyonnais in Edinburgh on Wednesday (Aug. 18). “Most of the players who are joining us late will not play in the game in Edinburgh. They need time to train. They need time to prepare. Also, they played most of the games last season. They need a little more rest,” he said.
“We need to make sure they can play. You have to approach it carefully. It’s not like you go from 0 to 100 all of a sudden,” he said, expressing his concern for the players and his intention to bring them back to form slowly. 토토사이트 순위
Aside from the matches, the players’ arrival will mean United will have a full squad. They’ll be joined by established players like Rafael Varane, who came straight out of international retirement, youth players like Kobi Mainu, and A-list players like Bruno Fernandes. Then the real preparation for the new season begins.
