Manchester United’s Nick Powell has recovered from his knee surgery and is ready to get back to training.
His last appearance in the red was in against MK Dons in that dreadful 4-0 loss near the end of August last year.
Weekend off before getting back into training after so long 🙏🏼⚽️

The centre forward has spent loan spells at Wigan and Leicester since joining for £5.25 million from Crewe Alexandra in 2012.
His current Manchester United first team stats read as 7 appearances, 1 goal. But, that goal did come on his debut and was a cracker.
Despite not yet having a squad number, Powell has been included in the Red Devils’ Premier League and Champions League squads, which is as good as winning a promotion code on the internet, and being told that your called up to play for Manchester United. With only a year left on his contract, this is his last chance to impress the boss but, his return to training, and eventual return to fitness, means that United have another forward.
That totals to one top centre forward (Wayne Rooney), a centre forward recovering from surgery (Nick Powell), and two inexperienced 19 year old strikers (Martial and Wilson). Rooney and Martial upfront with Powell and Wilson as back up isn’t a terrible strike force.
