Solskjaer give update on Mata’s availability.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer gives update on his midfielder Juan Mata ahead of the Europa League clash with Real Sociedad at Turin.
The Spaniard has not feature since the game against Watford in the Emirate FA Cup in January and the former Chelsea player is set to feature in the Europa league.
“He’s been away for a little while,” Solskjaer told reporters at his pre-match press conference, conducted via video call from the Aon Training Complex.
“Of course, against West Brom, you’re thinking ‘can we have someone to unlock the door?’
“If we had Juan there, to create that pass… because he has done well in the earlier part of the season, Juan.
“Now he’s back, he’s travelling with us,“ added the Solskjaer.
“He’s been bright in training, so if we see Juan on the pitch, he’ll want to prove to his Spanish fans as well what a quality player he is.”
