Manchester United has received a positive update on the fitness front as they prepare for the upcoming FA Cup clash against Wigan Athletic.
Following a disappointing 2-1 loss to Nottingham Forest, the Red Devils were without striker Rasmus Hojlund due to illness.
Hojlund, who recently scored his inaugural Premier League goal since his £64 million move from Atalanta, missed the Forest game.
Good news for United as Hojlund has recovered and returned to full training, positioning him to feature in the FA Cup tie.
With a desire to make an impact in the tournament, Hojlund aims to register his first FA Cup goal.
Erik ten Hag is expected to field a strong lineup, aiming to progress to the next round. The team’s schedule provides ample time for recovery and preparation, with more than a week having passed since their last game and another week until the next.
In an interesting development, Hojlund was spotted shaking hands with Sir Dave Brailsford during the Ineos investors’ tour of Carrington.
Billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe, also present, seemed pleased to meet the young Manchester United striker.
At 20, Hojlund represents a strategic investment for Ineos, showcasing promise and potential. His market value has already risen, making him a prudent choice.
Having delivered the winning goal against Aston Villa on Boxing Day, Hojlund aims to build on this success and add to his season tally of six goals.
