Manchester United vs FC Sheriff: What’s the latest injury news on Marcus Rashford?
“He’s not available. The consequence after Arsenal. He has a muscle injury.
“I don’t think [he will be out for] too long, but I cannot tell how long. It’s not really bad and we expect him to be back quite soon.”
Has Rashford done enough to earn an England recall?
“It’s quite clear [he can make the squad], sure, yes. He’s shown his great potential and quality [this season].
Is Cristiano Ronaldo going to start up front again then?
“I’m sorry but the Moldovan fans will have to wait until tomorrow [to find out].”
Are FC Sheriff capable of beating Manchester United?
“It’s quite clear, they beat Real Madrid and Shakhtar, they are capable. We have to make it our game but we are conscious of that fact. They are a serious and decent opponent and we have to play our best for the win.”
Is there more pressure to win after losing against Real Sociedad?
“Pressure is for every game, we have to win every game. When you lose the first game, you have to win the second, so we know what our task is. We always play a strong team, so also tomorrow we will play a strong team.
“I think our players are used to playing every third day a game. If that’s not the case, we use the days for training sessions. We are well prepared for the game tomorrow.”
