Manchester United held their UEFA Champions League 15-minute media training on Monday morning at the AoN Training Complex, training which was taken without first-teamers Michael Carrick, Nemanja Vidic, Chris Smalling, Marouane Fellaini and Patrice Evra.
Carrick is slowly on his way back after recovering from a Achilles problem and has been taking part in light training away from the first-team over the past two weeks. Marouane Fellaini and Chris Smalling both missed the weekends action, with Moyes revealing after the match that Fellaini had a bruised back while Smalling was missing due to a tight hamstring.
The reason’s behind the absence of Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra from media training are yet unknown.
Hopefully we will hear more this afternoon during David Moyes’ press conference from the Europa Suite at Old Trafford, updates from 2pm GMT.
Some good news to come out of Monday morning’s training though, Shinji Kagawa returned after missing the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United due to having his stomach pumped after consuming too much food.
