Boost for Manchester United as player with hamstring injury return to training ahead of the united trip to Wolves
Diogo Dalot has returned to Manchester United ahead of their Premier League clash with Wolves after recovering from a hamstring injury.
The 23-year-old picked up a hamstring injury playing for Portugal at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Morocco in the quarter-finals.
The right-back has been absent from the two United fixtures since the major tournament came to an end.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who replaced Dalot in those matches after the restart against Burnley in the Carabao Cup and Nottingham Forest in the Premier League has massively impressed – even earning praise from boss Erik ten Hag.
His return to first-team training could put him back in contention for the Red Devils trip to face Wolves in the early kick-off on Saturday.
Although he may have to wait for his opportunity to return, given Wan-Bissaka’s impressive performances in United’s last two matches, after playing just a total of four minutes prior to that so far this season.
Dalot is not the only player that has returned to training, making themselves available for selection, as centre-back Victor Lindelof also returned to training – having missed the win over Forest due to illness.
The illness has spread throughout the squad with Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay also being affected by it.
Lindelof’s return will be another huge boost for boss ten Hag, given that he had to deploy left-back Luke Shaw in the heart of defence in mid-week, with a lack of options at his disposal.
