Man Utd coach Michael Carrick offers positive Raphael Varane injury update

Manchester United supporters have been handed a positive update on the fitness of Raphael Varane by caretaker boss Michael Carrick before the arrival of Ralf Rangnick.

The World Cup winning France international has been out of action since he suffered an injury in their UEFA Nations League final against Spain, shortly after recovering from a previous blow.

Carrick has now offered an update on the 28-year-old ahead of the imminent arrival of Rangnick, who will be watching on at Old Trafford when they take on Arsenal.

"Yeah, Rapha’s rehab is going really well," Carrick revealed on Wednesday, with captain Harry Maguire returning to action following his suspension.

"He’s out on the grass but it won’t be any time this week, by any stretch, it’ll be a little bit further than that, if not even longer. He’s on course [though], which is good."

Carrick added of his wider team selection ahead of what is set to be his last game in charge: "Nothing really new.

"There are always niggles at this time of year, playing a lot of games. There are always players you're waiting on a little bit, to an extent.

"Obviously, Harry is coming back into the squad after his suspension but we'll see who is fit and available for tomorrow [Thursday]."

Adding when asked what he hopes to learn from Rangnick: "Good question.

"I think obviously a lot has happened in the last week or 10 days and I've had to certainly adapt and take on a new challenge and some skillsets maybe out of my comfort zone that I've never had to tackle before.

"I've enjoyed seeing how I've coped with that at times. You don't know until you're in that situation and you have to learn on the job. I can say, for the most part, I've enjoyed it."
