Telles who moved to Old Trafford from Porto for £15 million ($21m) last October, and made 27 appearances across all competitions in his first season with the Red Devils is said to miss the first start of the premier league.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Alex Telles will miss the start of Manchester United’s 2021-22 season due to an ankle injury that is “more severe than we hoped”.

Telles suffered a knock in training last week that forced him to the side lines at United’s 4-2 friendly defeat to Queens Park Rangers which the manager initially predicted not be serious.

However, the Norwegian boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now confirmed that the defender is facing a far longer spell on the sidelines after being evaluated by the club’s medical staff.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY THE MANAGER:
What’s been said?
Luke Shaw is currently the Red Devils’ first-choice right-back, but Brandon Williams could now be asked to step in and provide cover in Telles’ absence.

“Unfortunately, it’s worse news on Alex Telles than we hoped for, his ankle injury is a little bit more severe than we hoped and he’ll be out for a little spell at least, the whole of August I would think,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“That is football. We’ve got kids wanting to play of course. Brandon has done well in the left-back position.”

How many games could Telles miss?
Telles is now destined to be absent for United’s next three pre-season fixtures against Brentford, Preston and Everton before the new Premier League campaign kicks off on August 14.

Solskjaer’s side will open their schedule against Leeds United at Old Trafford, with away fixtures against Southampton and Wolves set to follow.

Telles won’t be available for those three outings, but could return to action in time for a home meeting with Newcastle on September 11 if his recovery goes smoothly.

Bongokuhle Hlongwane’s netted the only goal of the game in the 82nd minute after an improved second half performance from the hots. The host earlier had a goal ruled out for offside after Percy Tau looked to be in position before finishing off a cross in the 3th minute. Goalkeeper Richard Ofori was given a respite in the second half after letting a ball through his legs but the Bafana Bafana failed to capitalize after a striker misdirected the ball.

The Black Stars started the game well and had an early chance when defender Fafawu Mohammed sent striker Joel Fameyeh through, only for him to be clipped by De Reuck. The South Africa defender was then booked. However, the game swung immediately with the hosts dominating possession, but it was until the 32nd minute when Percy Tau though he had broken the deadlock only for him to be ruled offside. Five minutes later a freekick by the South African’s saw Richard Ofori, fumble but the rebound went way off. Ghana were lucky to head into the break with the result goalless.
