UCL: Manchester United playmaker a doubt for Atletico Madrid Clash due to COVID-19
Bruno Fernandes may be unavailable for Manchester United’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday after testing positive for Covid. Ralf Rangnick says that he will have to make a late decision for United’s encounter against Atletico Madrid at Old Trafford.
When asked about Fernandes’ availability, Rangnick replied: ‘I don’t know. ‘With Scotty, I hope so but he had some muscular problems with his calf. That’s why we decided not to play him [against Tottenham], because Scotty, quite like Fred, is only valuable if he can perform with 100 per cent of his physical capacity.
Luke is expected to return to training on Monday, while Bruno will have to wait until Tuesday. Due to Covid, this will most likely be a last-minute race with him.’ Rangnick remarked.
Fernandes, who has nine goals and 14 assists for Manchester United this season, trained on Wednesday but was unavailable for Saturday’s win over Spurs.
