Man Utd defender Tuanzebe happy getting clear of injury

Manchester United central defender Axel Tuanzebe has spoken about his injury concerns this season.

The Red Devils youngster has not gotten the same number of chances he was hoping to receive this season.

But it has been a case of him being absent when spaces opened up in the first team.

And Tuanzebe spoke with the club website about his return to fitness.

When asked for an update about his fitness, he said: "Yeah, my training has been very good for the last couple of weeks. My physio, John Davin, has helped me a lot with my progression and tried to really optimise the time I've had to recover. It's been going really good, I'm a lot stronger now and soon to be back on the pitch with the lads again."

He also spoke about the backroom staff's role in getting him healthy: "Yeah, most definitely, all of them play little parts. But mostly I have been with John and we have had a good plan on how to get back onto the pitch, so it has just been about executing it right this time and hopefully having no set-backs to get back with the lads."

And finally, Tuanzebe said that he should be back in full training very soon: "I couldn't really put a timeframe on it, but yeah very soon. The training today went well and I just want to keep that vibe, that mentality and that work ethic. Scott and Tim are always great to train with, we always push each other, so we are putting in the hard work to get back as soon as possible."
